Architecture fans out there, I am quite sure that you must have encountered Richard Roger’s works somewhere before (the real buildings or images of his works).


Richard Rogers + Architects: From the House to the City

While it is still expensive to travel to see his works up close you could now drop by the URA Gallery before the end of July to see models and drawings by his firm.

Once you are done, why not visit the ongoing exhibition by thesis graduates from NUS Architecture entitled “post-script” held at the Artrium of the MICA building?

post-script  city exhibition 2011

Every city has stories. Our daily lives form the script, and we are the characters. Architecture provides for the dialogue, backdrops, transitions and tones. Every year, students from the department of architecture, NUS, articulate their idea of how the built environment should/could be. Their processes are just as much a part of the story.

Presentation was slightly unique, scaffoldings were used and there are two raised paths where you could view the models located above the panels.
