People’s Park Complex is one of the most important modern Asian architectural heritage in Singapore. With this field lecture and walk around this iconic building and its urban context, we will try to uncover the hidden “gene” and the spirit of the place of Chinatown’s morphology and modern typology.

Held in conjunction with the exhibition Sheltered: Documents for Home, this walking tour is an extension of the exhibition’s research interest in Singapore’s urban history and housing.
