    btw all his designs apart from being geometrical, lacks finese. Even Scotts Tower looks like some giant rectangular popsicle n the cctv building in Beijing like some misdesigned shape. Being young and impressionable, his designs are more out to create statements. Maggie's hay days are over n ths guy could do better wth a younger and ***ier model than a woman going into menopause.

    We should be tired enough to see almost all condo launch recently look so similar to each other
    This guy give sg a fresh idea how creativity can be stretched. I believe he got inspired by those PSA containers while he was fetched from changi airport to Alexandra on the Ecp. But then, why no local architect is inspired by such scene ? Probably sg architect want to deliver 'safe' design.

    ha ha... it is not so much about safe design.. I am pretty sure singaporean architects can come out with interesting design like the Interlace as well.

    Looking at the design for the Interlace, the first thing that comes to my mind would be the the M&E of the development. It is going to be hell of a mess. And having worked with several developers before, i can tell you, it would take a developer with a strong stomach to push thru.

    long and short, i have seen many singaporean architect with interesting and glaring designs... however, they mostly get canned at the first stage, unfortunately...

    Strike the nail on the head the M&E construction is going to be a nightmare, in the end costs will be pushed up, good luck to Capital Land, just look at the amount of waterproofing needed to be done to all the top floor surfaces.

    I m not familiar with construction industry... I wonder if any architect can just come out with challenging design n expect the m&e to do the construction, whether is feasible or not?

    Actually if the location is good, maybe Mr Liew doesn't need to crack his brains with such gimmicks ... who wld simply buy becoz of design (or designer's name)??? In fact, this could backfire ....

    Some conventional designs can also look good if the style is rite ....

    there are a lot of implications. for example, the numbering of floors of a stack on top of two others. Is the "ground floor" of the stack jacked up the 1st floor or the 13th floor (if the stacks below are 12 floors high)? The same problem with the stacks higher up. How would Singpapore post handle the numbering system.

    How would the agents handle? a ground floor unit can actually be a great distance above the ground level.

    my question is much simpler......I'm just wondering how they are going to locate the lifts for this "messy"-looking building.....how are the lifts going to serve each unit adequately and yet maintain a sense of exclusivity?

    lifts are not a problem. they can be built at the points where two stacks physically make contact. but it will be awkward. as I said, how would you number the floors without creating some glaring oddities. What is a stack? which floor does each stack start from? etc.

    Some residents of a overhead stack will have to walk a long way to get a lift. Or, will the developer provide parachutes?
