For the ten years of its existence from 1965 to 1975, the Singapore Planning and Urban Research Group was a formidable think-tank comprising the island's most notable architects and planners, and later on, sociologists and other allied experts. The key objective of the group was to collectively study the problems, principles and practices of planning as they affected space-planning and architecture in post-Independence Singapore. They convened talks, forums, exhibitions, published their findings and engaged the government and public in dialogues. In their 50th year, NUS Museum invites its key members back for a reunion and a discussion about their work.

About the Foundations Series
Held in conjunction with the exhibition Between Here and Nanyang: Marco Hsu’s Brief History of Malayan Art, the Foundations Series is conceived to contextualise art and artistic practices against the backdrop of nation building and independence in the period of the merger ofSingapore and Malaya.
