A Walking Tour Singapore (4th Edition): Sketches of the city’s architectural treasures

Singapore is a cosmopolitan city with towering skyscrapers and state-of-the-art building technology. Nestled within its modern built environment are vestiges of its British colonial past and its cultural history. From its spanking new waterfront to its quaint shophouses and from its temples to its mosques and churches, Singapore is as multifarious architecturally as it is culturally. Architect G. Byrne Bracken captures with his sketches the unique diversity that defines Singapore. Covering favourite places such as Chinatown, the Civic District, Orchard Road and Kampong Gelam, this charming sketch-cum-guidebook will enrich your appreciation of Singapore through its distinctive urban landscape. In this 4th edition: 14 new illustrations, including the spectacular Marina Bay Sands, the ArtScience Museum and ION Orchard; refined walking routes; and fully updated information on all the latest developments in this fast-changing metropolis.Dr Gregory Byrne Bracken loves to walk, which he does all across the world. Apart from travelling, he has also lived and worked in London, Paris, Berlin, Bangkok and Singapore. Now based in the Netherlands, where he is an assistant professor of architecture at the Technical University of Delft, Gregory is a well-respected expert on the cities of East and Southeast Asia.
