What to Expect

Learn about Singapore’s vibrant and beautiful early modern architectural masterpieces, and bring streamlined design to life through a guided sketching workshop by our faculty and students from our Architecture and Sustainable Design (ASD) pillar!

This 2-hour workshop will take you through Singapore’s rich art deco-styled architectural past with links to present conserved buildings, such as those found in Tiong Bahru.

Participants will try their hand at basic hand-sketching as a primary means that aspiring designers use to visually brainstorm basic design ideas and forms.

Daniel Whittaker is a Senior Lecturer in Architecture and Sustainable Design at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Prior to teaching at SUTD, he was Owner’s Representative for the pre-planning, design, construction and staging of a new private museum in Chicago, Illinois called Wrightwood 659. Designed by Tadao Ando Architect and Associates of Osaka, Japan; the creation of a contemporary art and social activist space was precisely fit within an existing 1930s-era Chicago common brick masonry shell, requiring extensive project planning and coordination. Whittaker was co-curator of the gallery’s inaugural exhibition titled: “Masters of Architecture,” which explored architectural conversations between Le Corbusier’s oeuvre of béton brut creations and three of Tadao Ando’s American museums, through an archival lens.

Registration is closed. The workshop has been fully subscribed.
