What if you could dream up any building you like? What would it be? How would constructing it change our lives?

A mall self-destructs, and a single mother vanishes. A tree house for orphans and old folks is torn apart by an act of mercy. The Singapore Flyer is reinvented as a political prison. In this collection of nine tales, Clara Chow examines an alternative Singaporean landscape – one that exists only on paper – and the people we might be in it. She interviews nine architects about chimeric structures and sets short stories in them. A hybrid of journalism and fiction, Dream Storeys documents the voices of urban visionaries, while taking their ideas into inventive, evocative new territories.

Join us at the Singapore Writers Festival as we launch Dream Storeys by Clara Chow!

Moderated by Wong Kim Hoh, Senior Writer at The Straits Times, featuring interviewees/architects Yen Yen Wu and Mark Wee.
