Teck Whye is a public housing estate in Choa Chu Kang in the western part of Singapore. This collection of relief murals commissioned by the town council depicts the people and places before the region’s urbanization.
From plantation life in the early 1900s to the kampong (Malay for village) days of the 1950s, these snapshots are captured by three main marquee walls in the void decks of blocks 102, 112, and 122.
Unlike my previous work at Skyville@Dawson, I wanted to see if it was possible to do something similar on pre-existing structures. Using an alternative approach, the resulting walls have a shallower relief depth, but are complimented by the matching estate colors.
If you have not been to this part of the island, perhaps this might give you a reason to visit.
