Superimposing Spaces: Explorations on re-inventing mature developments workshop

6 - 8 August 2018
Seminar Room

As part of the second instalment of the collaboration between the Institute of Southeast Asian Arts (ISEAA) and the 3D Design Programme in weaving content with curriculum, ISEAA invited Professor Hikaru Kinoshita from Kansai University, Osaka, to conduct a 3-day workshop, kick-starting a 3-month long gestation.

This collaboration began with Professor Kinoshita meeting the 35 participating Landscape and Architecture students for a 3-day workshop addressing the topics of ‘superimposing spaces’ and ‘adaptive reuse of spaces’. These Year 3 students enrolled in the ‘Design Studio’ module were tasked to identify issues of neglected space through various perspectives and through the research and analysis of their allocated mature estate: Tanjong Pagar Plaza or Brash Basah Complex. The practical field work fuelled design and design solutions born equally from the imagination and site studies as well as comprehensive research.
