the gap of the space

underneath the bridge. It looks

like the bridge has a dark space

underneath. Yet as I walk into

space underneath it, I observe

that it is a shelter where birds

and workers may call it their

'home'.

The texture of the surfaces have revealed what one could see if they really look into the voids and

capture something at a different perspective.

The Dhoby Ghaut Green has structural sweeping curves that contrast with the

urban backdrop while its rippling metallic façade complements and adds texture

to the park environment. Its porous surface allows views inward and outward.

As one enters, they would find themselves being an amphitheater that is enclosed yet

open. This is contrasting to the engulfing surface one sees from the outside.

Plants have 'eats' up what could have been an open space for the shophouses' facade and the view of the Imperior condo on my slice

The cover of plants has made the buildings more conservative. It piques my curiosity to find out what is in store behind the plants.

In this slice visit, I look into the different surfaces of the openings and

want to find out the kind of activities that are going on inside. It helps

me open up a new perspectives when I took photos that help me with

my observation and realizing the pattern. I know my city could be about

the surfaces- Transparency in the opacity/ Translucency

After 5 site visits of observing my city, I realize many of shops and structures have a surface that is hard to see through. Buildings

are relatively conservative. There are many distracting factors that can cause one to neglect what is within. It takes initiative for

one to look beyond the translucency to find out what is in store.

Light creates mood and evokes emotion. As it is shadowing the streets of the city, it is a

revelation of its people and activities. The movement would make the city a collective soul as

it tells the story that is happening at the transitory moment.

Conclusion 36


A City of Understanding from Within

Since my city is conservative in the sense that buildings and spaces are covered by

materiality and texture, people should question what is in store in them. It takes initiative for

one to look beyond the surfaces and dive into noticing the details from the conservative

building bodies. Only then, they would open up and reveal its people and activities. It is a

satisfying observatory process when one understands the spaces from inside out.
