For this special trade edition, designed to coincide with the DP50 exhibition at the URA Centre, Singapore, in August, DP Architects: 50 Years Since 1967 offers a holistic insight into the firm’s unique story and technique. It provides readers with a curated selection of some of DPA’s most renowned projects, including The Dubai Mall, Esplanade— Theatres on the Bay, Sunray Headquarters, the Singapore University of Technology and Design with UNStudio, the Singapore Sports Hub and Resorts World Sentosa, as well as current projects, including the Sengkang Hospital. In addition to a generous feature of built projects, DP Architects: 50 Years Since 1967 contains exclusive interviews with DPA’s principals, including founder Koh Seow Chuan. Throughout this celebratory publication, leading voices share their experiences and wisdom in spirit of collaborative design across a multitude of typologies, scales and locations. From early on, DPA earned a reputation for producing environmentally conscious buildings with a joie de vivre inherent to their user-oriented design values and colourful palette. A half-century later, with 17 offices operating worldwide and 1,300 employees currently in service, DPA remains true to its founding vision of maintaining an excellence in design that improves the quality of life for a public engaged with its planning and architectural works.
