Masters Thesis

1


The thesis project started with the exploration of the evolution of powers of control, from the monarchical society to the disciplinary society and subsequently, societies of control. The framework of Control, Alternate, Delete was then formed to describe the various perceptions of freedom that the powers created. This framework was applied onto Chinatown in Singapore where the landscape had changed drastically. The practices of the past were gone as the people living in the shophouses were evicted as with the government’s policy of modernising Singapore. However recognising the important role of the shophouses. the government decided to restore them and made into tourist attractions. The shophouses were but empty shells, the programs and functions inside bearing no resemblance to the past. This created various illusions and individual identities were deleted as the people were made to conform to the state. Chinatown became heavily gentrified and lost its authenticity. Meanwhile the government built HDB flats in Chinatown, particularly along Kreta Ayer and Keong Saik Road. The residents then made this place their homes. Genuine and authentic spirit could be found which contrasts greatly with the inauthenticity of the gentrified shophouses. The thesis project then proposes a hotel to be built on Banda Hill which is surrounded by the HDB flats and hence, aims to bring the tourists and residents together through commercial activities, traditional chinese medicine facilities and spa.

• Total erasure of the individual and his independence

• People are taught to adhere to the laws

• Made to conform to the system • Even though the individual has the freedom to do the things he

• Physical boundaries and constraints

wants, he is confined within the system

• Eg. schools, prisons, factories, offices, hospitals, housing

• A new form of control with advancement of technology • Illusions are created and identities can easily be changed • Blurring of boundaries between reality and virtual reality
