TOMORROW: Design Stories of Our Future
What would a day in Singapore look like in 2065?
This is the question given to us by Justin Zhuang in this Singaplural 2017 project where I was assigned to work with Randy Chan of ZARCH Collaboratives on a topic of "Connect"
50 years a long time considering the evolution social media came about within a decade and it is a very broad topic to tackle. Rather than trying to frame it, both of us imagine being on adventure, exploring the various aspects of Singapore down the uncertain 2065.
We imagine how various layers of city co-exist in the city : the virtual realm of information (cloud) and the physical city. How technology and advancements in transportation and connects us and brings us ever closer. The city is no longer simply isolated in its geographical location. London and Tokyo feels like next door.
At the same time, the simultaneous existence of multiple layers of the city challenged our conventional notion of what the city is and ultimately our own identities and existence in the future. The past , present and future could exist in the same location as we google past information of a location, landmarks are formed by crowd responses rather than just having a monumental architecture. The future of connectivity is truly uncertain and a world of adventure come to think about it.
