The special anniversary issue of Cubes is out now. We pause, reflect and look ahead with an acute consciousness that design can be a powerful agent for better outcomes.
7 December, 2020
We mark 100 issues of Cubes this year. It certainly is a bizarre time to be releasing a milestone issue with the worldwide upheaval that is the COVID-19 pandemic. But seen through rose-tinted glasses, it is also an opportune time to be doing so.
Down through the years, Cubes has endeavoured to hold a mirror up to the undertakings and aspirations of architecture and design in Singapore and the region. With this issue, it’s only fitting then that we pause, take stock and peer into what’s ahead, even as the rest of the industry also reflects and recalibrates during this time.
In place of our usual showcase of projects, we tap into the collective wisdom of the architecture and design community and explore key topics that are pertinent to Singapore and the region:
The questions are varied (but by no means exhaustive). The responses even more so and by turns enlightening and provocative. The conversations we had were undergirded by a steely optimism and a fundamental belief that design can be a powerful agent for better outcomes.
We take this opportunity to extend our hearty congratulations to the winners of the INDE.Awards 2020 who also are presented in this issue. They are testament to the quality and resilience of the design community in the region and a timely reminder that how we shape the spaces and environments around us can ultimately lead to greater good.
