in university, i did one class on singapore architecture and from there i learned lots of interesting facts about singapore's architectural landscape. it's fascinating that such a small island has so many historical buildings like the cathedral of the good shepherd (first photo on the right) which was built in 1832. i also always thought that singapore's public housing (or flats) were rather cookie cutter but i learned that there are actual many different architectural styles according to different periods. i was and remain fascinated by architecture. i love to find out the history of the building and poke around in different niches and nooks in the building. and it goes without saying that i love to point my holga at them!
