Building Memories Art Book

Building Memories is an interactive art book documenting the histories and memories of four public buildings which have helped shape Singapore – the National Library (1960), the National Theatre (1963), the Singapore Conference Hall and Trade Union House (1965) and the National Stadium (1973). Design elements such as a replicated library card, event invitation, architectural pop-up, photographs and comic strips were combined with historical information that engages the visual and tactile senses, creating an immersive experience that encourages recollection and reliving of memories.
