Title: An omnipresent loss.
Authors: Yap, Jean Jing Yi.

Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: There is an innate desire to belong to a place. We are but travelers in search of home, where dreams of past and future manifest. Greatly influenced by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, the project laments the loss of one's roots due to the ever-changing character of Singapore. Rapid change in the physical environment is emphasized by the fragmented structures of familiar places,reflecting their transient nature. These places have been under the limelight for the future plans in store for them. What happens when places that embody memories are swept away by an irrepressible hurricane of change? In dealing with nostalgia, the project aims to be a reminder of human’s forgetfulness about history and to encourage less destructive visions for the future.
