Balancing Heritage and Modernity: Designing the Macalister Mansion
Founder-Director, Ministry of Design, Singapore
Inspired by the historic context of the project’s site and culture, Ministry of Design’s vision for Macalister Mansion straddles two worlds, balancing heritage and modernity. Colin Seah, MOD’s Founder and Design Director, will describe the design process behind the project, detailing how the underlying narrative experience was conceptualized and how it was applied to a host of design disciplines including interior design, product design, art direction and branding.
深受該項目的地理位置及其歷史文化背景所啟發，Ministry of Design希望藉著重新打造Macalister Mansion 這個活化項目，將傳統及現代這兩個截然不同的世界融合。 MOD 創辦人及設計總監Colin Seah將會揭開項目背後的設計過程，解構如何把埋藏於大樓的歷史概念化，然後從不同的設計學科，如室內設計、產品設計、藝術方向以至品牌體現建築物的神髓。
