About the Collection:

The Singapore Architecture Collection is capturing Singapore’s unique architectural stories and journeys for current and future generations. Building upon architectural archival materials already in the National Library and National Archives of Singapore, the collection deepens efforts to document and preserve a wider range of archival materials that could offer richer insights about our architects and urban designers’ innovative designs and stories about our buildings and the growth of our city. 

The Collection comprises architectural models, photographs, drawings, artefacts, oral histories and more. Architects, planners, urban designers and others from the built environment industry are welcomed to contribute their materials to the collection. Researchers and the public can also access the collection in future or join future outreach programmes to learn more about our local architecture.
