Parting Glances: Singapore’s Evolving Spaces


Parting Glances: Singapore’s Evolving Spaces takes readers on an evocative visual journey through six iconic neighbourhoods within this dynamic island nation that are poised on the brink of change. Whether it is due to redevelopment to pave the way or future industry and housing, or due to shifting demographics, these spaces will be forever altered within the coming decade. With an aim to capture and preserve history as it is unfolding, this book includes photo essays and reflective interviews of longtime residents who collectively impart a lifetime of memories. Parting Glances is a useful primer for first-time visitors while offering nostalgic, poignant images that will allow residents to recall a Singapore from bygone years.

The book features images and text by Craig McTurk, with a foreword by Tan Pin Pin.
