Co-organised between NUS Museum and the School of Design and Environment (SDE), this exhibition grows out of the participating alumni’s responses to the architectural essay film 03-FLATS, conceptualized by Dr Lilian Chee (Architecture, SDE) and directed by filmmaker Lei Yuan Bin (www.03-flats.com).

The title of the exhibition acknowledges that home remains an ambivalent practice of place-making — between the roofs over our heads and the ground beneath our feet — and a conditional transaction between security and uncertainty; familiarity and alienation. Ranging across the mediums of photography, architectural drawing, and installation, projects featured in this exhibition are attempts to trace the assumptions and habits we hold when it comes to Singapore’s domestic urban landscape, particularly as one shaped largely by public housing schemes.

The exhibition consists of three components, each attempting to respond to their respective contexts: the first of which was presented at the URA Centre in late July 2015; the second takes place here at the NUS Museum; and the third component opens as a satellite exhibition at the National Library Board’s Lee Kong Chian Reference Library in early October 2015.
