Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415299829 | edition 2004 | File type: PDF | 240 pages | 10,7 mb
Beyond Description explores the history and architecture of Singapore. It argues that neither history nor architecture can be fruitfully examined without reference to the other. For this reason, aspects of urban life will always be beyond description, yet these aspects are what most call for analysis. On this premise, the book examines Singapore¡¯s built environment by assessing how its past as a colonial port relates to its present as a global hub and how these inform its possible futures. The chapters complicate existing assumptions about global urbanism, post-colonialism and architectural theory from a dedicated interdisciplinary perspective.
