WOHA Architects have set about implementing what might possibly be described as 'the architecture of the new Asia', where respect for place and tradition must be offset by the intimidating social realities of the 21st century.
WOHA's recent work has demonstrated an absolute clarity of thought and an almost cussed pragmatism: one which single-mindedly prioritised programmatic innovation over formal games. WOHA resolutely set about improving the architecture models, as they perceived them, of Singapore (and by extension throughout Southeast Asia), and their approach has been unflinching: they operate in their own rarified world of virtuous creativity.
