DP Architects, founded in 1967, two years after Singapore’s independence, has evolved in tandem with the building of the nation and has been instrumental in shaping Singapore’s remarkable environment.

This book chronicles the history of DP Architects and its involvement in the creation of Singapore’s Marina Bay over a period spanning 50 years. It discusses the relationship between land reclamation and the conception of architecture and public space in Singapore through projects that represent a diverse range of building types, including hotels, malls, and offices, as well as cultural and performance spaces. Each project has a vital public component that contributes to the connectivity of Marina Bay and its success as the nation’s civic core.
