HDB: HOMES OF
SINGAPORE



This book celebrates the art and culture of Singapore homes, particularly "Everyone’s home" - the HDB flat. We spent years visiting more than hundred homes to photograph the life in a HDB. Our aim is to capture the unique living here in Singapore which is formed through the interaction among cultures. Our project aims to enhance sense of belonging, bring appreciation, and draw attention to beauty of life that is happening around HDB flat. We believe this extends beyond the people who live in HDB flats, but also to the wider Singaporean community at large and beyond. This is a distinctive culture, and has contributed greatly to the enduring success of Singapore.







ABOUT THE AUTHORS


KEYAKISMOS
Eitaro Ogawa and Tamae Iwasaki are the passionate people behind Keyakismos. Derived from the Japanese word “keyaki” (Zelkova tree) and “cosmos” (flower), the alias stands for their shared creative philosophy that the collaboration among different elements achieves much more than one. Motivated by their life motto – “love God, love people” – Eitaro and Tamae are involved in art and community projects such as Pameran Poskad which encourages all sorts of collaborations, with the goal of creating opportunities for people to experience art in daily life. They have two lovely daughters.
