Unearthing Stories, Against Tabula Rasa

This project started with my interest in ‘Ruins’ – the story it speaks, the history it contains, to the rawness and beauty of the materiality it holds.

That is why this project questions the buried dangers in preservation in Singapore, as the Tabula Rasa strategy does not only cause the structures themselves to be destroyed but also the authenticity of stories of these buildings to be completely erased from existence.

I will be tackling three pars regarding the ‘Buried Dangers in Preservation’ – they are firstly those spaces neglected in preservation, secondly the superficial and physical illusion in preservation and finally, as a conclusion, the scars and scabs of spaces during preservation.
