About This Book

This volume, yet another by prolific architect-writer Robert Powell, identifies and analyses the major trends in the design of houses in Singapore from 1945 to the end of the century. Asst.Prof Hee Limin's opening chapter entitled, "The Singapore House - a dialectic," reviews and discusses residential architecture up to the 1980s in the light of international trends and influences. The author's Introduction continues Hee Limin's analysis into the 1990s and beyond by identifying the emerging architects and their practices. This collection -- mostly culled from previously featured works -- fills an important gap in the history of the Singapore house and provides useful background information to enhance appreciation of the 19 houses featured. These houses are the work of eight design-oriented architectural practices. In residential design, they represent the cutting-edge of the architectural profession at the outset of the 21st century.
