The NUS M.Arch Show 2021 showcases the thesis projects of the graduating Master of Architecture students from the National University of Singapore; a collection of bold questions and propositions displaying the expertise obtained in architectural education. A year-long undertaking, the thesis is an arduous yet joyful journey, where conversations, critiques and references gently nudge students towards certain contemporary and relevant trajectories, organically converging into communities of practice where the works collectively resonate with one another. Convergence occurs along five discursive threads, which form the five clusters of the show: “Critical Architecture”, “History & Heritage”, “Sociopolitics & Geopolitics”, “Technologies” and “Urbanism & Environments”. Each cluster is uniquely positioned to probe the limits of the discipline, and to respond to the demands of wider society.
The International Built Environment Week (IBEW) is the first fully-integrated event in the Asia Pacific covering the entire built environment value chain. Organised by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and supported by 12 Trade Associations and Chambers, the event will convene under the theme “Innovation: Powering Sustainable and Smarter Cities”.
The IBEW 2020 will bring together over 12,000 industry leaders and businesses from the global built environment sector for rich exchanges of innovative ideas, and showcase the best of innovations in sector.
