A hands-on workshop about Brutalism and conceptual ideas behind the Big Four.
Brutalism is part of a Modernist architectural movement of which local structures Pearl Bank Apartments, Golden Mile Tower, and the Golden Mile and People’s Park Complexes are a part. The four buildings embody a particular zeitgeist in 1960s Singapore that was rife with aspirations of new independence, and a buoyant optimism towards defining the country’s future.
How much do you know about Brutalism? And what is so remarkable about the design of Pearl Bank Apartments? This workshop brings you on a hands-on discovery to understand the design logic behind these architectural gems.
This concrete casting workshop is conducted by Jonathan Poh, Principal Architect and co-founder of PROVOLK ARCHITECTS, venue supported by Drama Box, and is suitable for ages 6 and up.
