Folio 05: Documents on NUS Architecture

$36.00 SGD

By Li Shiqiao

The Folio series presents the rich and diverse discourses taking place at NUS Architecture, a strategic meeting point between the architecture of different cultures and geographic regions. The fifth book in the series features leading architects and critics as they test out their latest ideas and designs with the students and faculty of NUS Architecture, on a range of issues such as tropicalism, dreams and architecture, architecture and philosophy and architectural education.

Results of joint studies (such as that between NUS and Princeton) and international award-winning projects designed by students and faculty are featured here; as in the past, NUS' efforts in design and research are intensely engaged with the imperatives and the contradictions, as well as the dynamism, of Singapore in its region.

This publication is both a window on the work being done currently at NUS Architecture, and a fascinating exploration of important issues in architectural theory and practice.
