The Golden Mile and Beach Road district is an area rich in architectural heritage and flavour, with structures that range from pre-war buildings to buildings from the modernist era of newly
independent Singapore, to newer ‘starchitect’ designed pieces. With the rapidly changing local skyline, there has been a greater interest in discovering our heritage, manifested especially in
discussions about the preservation of buildings and spaces.
Photographer Darren Soh, who is most recognised for his documentation of vernacular local architecture, aims to blur the lines between art and architecture as he explores the district in this
photographic exhibition. Details, façade designs and even explicit/implicit signs of human inhabitation and intervention in the built landscape are revealed to viewers as they immerse
themselves in the floor-to-ceiling sized prints.
A second part of the show takes place on the floor of the open air roof-top of Objectifs. Here, images are made in a top down manner to show the landscaping, layout and public spaces,
giving an aerial perspective to the viewer and the opportunity to continue a virtual exploration of the district.
