The tropical megacity demands an imaginative rethinking of the way we build and live. Wong Munn
Summ and Richard Hassell, the visionaries behind WOHA, one of Southeast Asia’s most prominent
architecture firms, argue that the way forward is skyward—with a Garden City populated by vertical,
hyperdense structures. As they share experiences and strategies from recent projects, a greener,
more biophilic urban landscape takes shape.
ABOUT THE INTERVIEW SERIES
Reflecting the conceptual framework of the Global Art Affairs Foundation, the series explores the philosophical concerns of architects exhibiting at TIME SPACE EXISTENCE, part of the 2016 collateral programming at the Biennale Architettura 2016. The diverse roster includes Denise Scott Brown (USA), Peter Eisenman (USA), Curtis W. Fentress (USA), Meinhard von Gerkan (Germany), Dirk Hebel (Switzerland), Frei Otto (Germany), and Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell (Singapore). Curated and produced by PLANE—SITE, the video series will be on view for the duration of the TIME SPACE EXISTENCE exhibition.
