About This Book

Alfred Wong Hong Kwok is an architect whose working career spanned more than half a century. He was deeply involved in the birth of our local architectural institutions, and was the President of the Singapore Institute of Architects for four years. He has designed many significant buildings that paralleled the physical and social developments of modern Singapore. From the SATA clinic in Changi and several parish churches, he subsequently designed the National Theatre, the Marco Polo Hotel, the Singapore Polytechnic campus, Saint Joseph's Institution, the PSA Keppel Distripark, and many other important buildings and building complexes. This book chronicles a lifelong passion for architecture and music, two themes that recur in the book chapters. It also details a life that has been interwoven into significant eras of Singapore's development beyond its status as an accidental nation.
