In 𝙎𝙪𝙗/𝙢𝙚𝙧𝙜𝙚𝙙, artist Finbarr Fallon responds to the site of Singapore Art Museum, located in Singapore’s Bras Basah Bugis Precinct. He draws inspiration from the history of the area to imagine a subterranean city of the future.
The work invites us to turn our attention away from our present-day surroundings to a world where the sky is no longer the limit. This hypothetical city is a reaction to the numerous plot and development regulations in the Bras Basah Bugis Precinct, including restrictions on building heights due to the many national monuments in the area. 𝘚𝘶𝘣/𝘮𝘦𝘳𝘨𝘦𝘥 presents a thoughtful and compelling argument for developing Singapore’s underground as the next frontier for urban verticality.
Fallon builds on the network of subsurface passages and transit corridors surrounding the site of the Singapore Art Museum, many of which form Singapore’s 2nd deepest MRT station, Bras Basah. The artist has also drawn on the earlier world-building in his 2017 animated film ‘Subterranean Singapore 2065’, which proposes large scale underground living in land-scarce Singapore.
