Building Memories - National Library Board Singapore / Achates 360 Pte Ltd

Graphic Design - Publication

- Gold

The birth of Building Memories begins with three like-minded friends – an architect, an illustrator and a designer – who shared the same appreciation for Singapore’s Heritage. This project was supported by the Singapore Memory Project’s irememberSG Fund as part of the Singapore 50th National Day (SG50) celebrations. At heart, Building Memories is an interactive art book documenting the intrinsic histories, as well as personal and collective memories of four public buildings which have helped shape the nation. These were the National Library (1960), the National Theatre (1963), the Singapore Conference Hall and Trade Union House (1965) and the National Stadium (1973). The essence of these structures is uniquely captured through intricate design elements such as replicated library cards, stadium invitations, collections of historical images to theatre architectural pop-up that allows people to re-experience their personal memories.
