2017 is a milestone year for DP. We began as a homegrown firm of 15 in 1967; we are now one of the world’s largest architecture practices, at 1,300 strong. In 50 years, we have helped to transform the cityscape of Singapore and have had the privilege to fly high the Singapore flag in 77 countries.
Our 17 international offices and specialist subsidiaries work together as One Global Studio to extend our integrated, multidisciplinary design strategies to all typologies, at all scales and locations. To strengthen our delivery of fully coordinated design solutions, we are pleased to announce the addition of DP Façade and DP Xperience to our family of specialist services that include DP Consultants, DP Design, DP Engineers, DP Green, DP Healthcare, DP Infrastructure, DP Lighting and DP Sustainable Design.
Building on the legacy we have inherited from our founders, we continue to push Design First in all we do and drive innovation through design. Our ethos is grounded in the firm’s name, Design Partnership, and exemplified through our focus on purposeful design through partnerships with everyone – the communities we design for and the people we design with.
The theme of our DP50 celebration, Partners in Design, encapsulates our spirit of collaboration. We have also planned a series of programmes to celebrate our 50th anniversary, including the launch of a book that chronicles DP’s history and a DP50 exhibition to be held at the URA Centre in August. We will share more details in the months to come.
Thank you for your support and partnership throughout the firm’s 50 years. We look forward to celebrating this and future milestones with you.
– Angelene Chan, CEO
