ONE RAFFLES LINK
In Singapore, a city of skyscrapers, a new building by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates stands out as the city's first "groundscraper." The design of One Raffles Link nonetheless reflects a Singaporean tradition of efficient urban planning, conserving the city's precious land and allowing it to remain a garden city.
The building spans two cultures, with its ground-level colonnade providing shelter from Singapore's tropical climate and European-style rusticated stonework reminiscent of nearby colonial buildings. Published 2001.0502
