“To the young and to the not so old, I say, look at that horizon, follow that rainbow, go ride it”. – Lee Kuan Yew, 1996
In 1965, with a bold vision and drive, Singapore pushed towards adopting new opportunities and embracing changes. The dream of few rippled across the nation but the efforts of many created the momentum for Singapore’s success. Through 57 years of rapid innovation and development, Singapore has blossomed into the beautiful Garden City she is today.
From the bustling nightlife & scenic environments to the everchanging city skyline, Singapore’s identity today goes beyond the iconic Jewel Changi Airport. The everyday life of Singaporeans take place within neighbourhood gems such as Watertown & Waterway Point, East Coast Park and Wheelock Place. These humble spaces often begin with a simple wish – to be enjoyed – and with the thoughtfully curated decisions of Architects, do these intuitive designs come to life. Through the years, RSP have seen how Singapore has grown and we will continue to interpret the evolving lifestyle for future generations without losing what makes us unique.
Three Salient Fundamentals
Architecture is about creating a dialogue with its environment and how it encapsulates both possibilities and restrictions. The local flora & fauna, orientation, sun path, and surrounding buildings are always part of the design consideration.
Partnerships goes beyond the architect and client, but also the users, nature and time. A successful partnership is about creating harmony amongst stakeholders and resonates with all generations
Reimagining the Future
Last but certainly not least, is planning for the future. It is time that design is no longer ‘for’ the next generation but designing with them. The unmatched potential of today’s generation will pave a brighter and greener Singapore.
Today, we celebrate you, Singapore.
