Singapore is more than a city of gleaming shopping malls – it also has a vibrant contemporary arts scene. Archiwalks founder Fabian Lua picks out great galleries and design-led sights
The tiny island state may be swathed in grand, gleaming architectural marvels and cavernous shopping malls, but scratch the surface and youll find a hotbed of creativity. Singapore is changing, says the affable Fabian Lua, born and bred on Singapores history-rich east coast, a former plantation area full of Peranakan culture and pastel-hued prewar shophouses. Lua is the founder of Archiwalks, a set of storytelling walks through arty pockets of the city centre, such as Bugis, Kampong Glam and Bras Basah.
