WOHA Architecture Walk Singapore (in Bugis-Bras Basah)

Description
WOHA Architecture Walk Singapore brings you on an intimate, 90-minute hands-on tour of the Bugis Bras Basah neighbourhood. You'll walk and chat as part of a small group (capped at 8) while learning about the history and architecture along Queen Street. As part of the tour, examine two distinct buildings designed by the award-winning, homegrown architecture practice WOHA.

This walk shares a story of Singapore's rapidly shifting architecture and urban landscape, and examines the hidden forces that shape these changes.

The experience:
We'll start our tour with a friendly group introduction.
Then we'll explore a series of buildings with historical significance along Queen Street, together with two contrasting WOHA buildings: a mall and an MRT station.

Duration: Approximately 90 minutes, including 60 minutes of walking.
Accessibility: Busy sidewalks, but flat and straight route. Queen Street (the main stretch we'll be on) has relatively fewer cars than main roads.

Only 8 spots available, and we've been completely full for the past four sessions.

How to find me:
We're meeting in front of Nando's at Bugis Junction.

About the walk leader:

His experience in understanding architecture range from the formal (taking architecture history classes when he was at UPenn) to the informal (reading books from Basheer and the library). He has led art tours as part of OH! Open House in Tiong Bahru and Marina Bay.

FAQ:
Why can't I buy more than 2 tickets?
The total group size is 8, and think of it as a chance to meet new friends!
