  • (1888PressRelease) September 06, 2012 - Singapore-based architectural writer and photographer, Patrick Bingham-Hall believes Singapore cannot be improved upon as a litmus test of 21st century global architecture. The acclaimed photographer believes Singapore's architecture and city planning reflects a new 21st century reality.

    "Singapore is the new New York. The architecture of cities has always defined a civilization, and has always been the mark of a civilization's culture. When you extend this concept, the architecture of a great city will also reflect the social issues of the age."

    Mr Bingham-Hall has written, photographed and edited books that have become the standard reference material for architecture around the world, including many books on architects in Singapore and Southeast Asia. He says that for such documentation, "still photography is the best way to capture the details; it's irreplaceable."

    With his latest book - A Guide to 21st Century Singapore Architecture - slated for feature at the upcoming World Architecture Festival, Mr Bingham-Hall is holding a photo exhibition at the Creative Design Space (CDS) at NAFA. Titled "Monuments of our Culture: Architecture through the Ages", the showcase will also include a Q&A session on Singapore's architecture.

    Ian Pringle, CEO of APD Singapore, the independent book distributor, is thrilled on the upcoming exhibition. "Patrick's works have a huge global appeal. With over 30 books to his name and many exhibitions around the world, we're really excited to showcase his works at the CDS."

    The photo exhibition will run over two weeks from 12th to 25th October 2012 with the book launch kicking off the showcase on 12 October 2012.
