Connections takes a look at two of Singapore’s most prominent National Monuments. The histories of the buildings, their architecture as well as their transformation are presented in three parts:
a. History and Architecture
These two Monuments had been designed to reflect the aspirations of the Singapore colony and have witnessed pivotal events in Singapore’s evolution from a colony to an independent republic.
b. Dreams and Visions
A photographer’s interpretation of the buildings’ histories and architectural elements, presented through surrealistic images that invite the imagination of readers and inject a fresh breath of inspiration to the buildings.
c. Restoration and Preservation
The buildings’ restoration and transformation into an art gallery are documented in this essay contributed by Jean François Milou and studioMilou Singapore, the architectural firm responsible for this monumental effort.
