Periplus Editions (HK), 2004 - Architecture - 144 pages
Singapore Architecture captures the architectural heritage of Asia's crossroads city. The early temples, chophouses and colonial monuments hold historical significance, while the modern skyline reflects Singapore's role as a 21st-century powerhouse. The recent work of local architects represents a unique and dynamic mix of cross-cultural influences, combining traditional Asian style with a thorough knowledge of modern architecture.

Filled with full-color photographs of private houses, public buildings, shrines, mosques and office towers, this book reflects the broad spectrum of Singapore's buildings.
