This is part of the HistoriaSG series. HistoriaSG is a lecture series at National Museum of Singapore that focusses on important but lesser-known aspects of Singapore’s history.

From 1955 to the mid-1970s, Singapore underwent a significant phase in physical development. Not only were infrastructure works such as housing and downtown improvements started, several public buildings of national importance were also planned and constructed. These include the National Library (1960), the National Theatre (1963), the Singapore Conference Hall and Trade Union House (1965), and the National Stadium (1973).

These public structures enabled the advancement of the population beyond the concerns for just bread and butter issues to embrace modern times and practices. They also served as physical interfaces for Singaporeans to understand and interact with peoples from the region and the world at large. This talk discusses the contexts of the four buildings as well as the architecture for a new era.
