Practice Profile

It has been three decades of living in and working from Singapore as a base. The practice is an ongoing encounter with this world, bringing in bigger trajectories to be part of each project where actions or decisions are layered over and transformed. One such arc is the relation between the exterior and the interior. It has become commonplace to experience them as separate and divided, led by cultivated habits and mechanical and electrical systems. In the everyday life of a city dweller, this has become a smooth confrontation that occurs intimately as part of the daily rhythms. How is it to imagine scenarios where it is more directly related? From where can this begin? What are the possible effects?
