Having lived in a modern city my whole life, it’s hard to not notice the tall, geometric structures surrounding me. Such formal aesthetics is especially evident in the public housing of Singapore. In plain sight, the purpose of building these public housings in such a manner seems to be so that spaces could be maximised to its full potential. However I believe that there is more to it than just being a functional component. Order is something implemented throughout the human society, from having a vernacular language to the currency that we use within a region. This order or system seems to be crucial to how we function, and though we may not realise it but we may even find it comforting to us. This order that we thrive in could be found in the geometries of our architecture as well. Geometry could be seen as the opposite of what nature is, organic. Such order is evidence of our presence and our triumph over the environment, it let’s us know that we are in control.
