Singapore Heritage Festival 2019 - Our Modern Unloved


Embark on this unique tour as we explore two of Singapore's modern "unloved" buildings, Former Singapore Conference Hall & Trade Union House and Jurong Town Hall, post-independence buildings gazetted as National Monuments! Boxy and without much adornment, these two buildings look deceptively plain - but what secrets lie beneath their concrete facade?

Join us as we unravel the stories of Singapore's post-independence struggles and hopes. Discover why these buildings are truly uniquely Singaporean, and in their own ways, worthy of being loved.
