Along The Golden Mile is a set of two posters that were released in conjunction with a photographic installation held at Objectifs in 2015 where the images where exhibited in the form of floor-to-ceiling sized prints. Click here to view a video interview with Darren Soh, where he shares his process and inspiration behind this work. The Golden Mile and Beach Road district is an area rich in architectural heritage and flavour, with structures that range from pre-war buildings to buildings from the modernist era of newly independent Singapore, to newer ‘starchitect’ designed pieces. With the rapidly changing local skyline, there has been a greater interest in discovering our heritage, manifested especially in discussions about the preservation of buildings and spaces.

In this series, photographer Darren Soh, who is most recognised for his documentation of vernacular local architecture, aims to blur the lines between art and architecture as he explores the district in this photographic exhibition. Details, façade designs and even explicit/implicit signs of human inhabitation and intervention in the built landscape are revealed to viewers through the two posters. One of the posters features an essay by Ms Tamares Goh, former head of visual arts at The Esplanade.
