布朗合作社:談論武吉布朗存在中的缺塊
The Brown Co-op: Negotiating the Absence Presence of Bukit Brown

我的設計企圖在一片重新規劃的墓地上呈現出發展與保留之間的掙扎,並探討人們對於國家認同和歷史歸屬的危機感。
設計中的墓地被住宅替代,但住宅旁的公園將成為未來和記憶之間的門。通過公園中合作社裡的活動,激發人們對過去的回憶:合作社回收當地的泥土,通過設計裡的兩種窯,把原料燒成了建築合作社所能運用的砂漿、磚塊和陶器。從中,慣例中將被丟棄的材料,這些承載了數代新加坡英雄殘骸的泥土再次被賦予了意義,成為了自己最好的無字碑。

In 2011, the state announced plans to redevelop Bukit Brown Cemetery (BBC) into a residential estate with a new highway. My thesis seeks to recast this contestation beyond the polemics of progress and conservation, investigating the issue as an existential anxiety over identity and our connection to the past.
The thesis is positioned in a future where the cemetery ground is erased and replaced by residential estates. Located within a park, this thesis seeks to reconnect the estates with memories of BBC by teasing out residual traces through a community-managed cooperation called the Brown Co-op (TBC).
The pregnant ground of BBC is in itself a monument. Yet, quantities of earth have to be excavated and displaced for development. TBC, however, proposes to receive the displaced earth so as to extract from it: clay and sand, which will be used for mortar, production of bricks and pottery. A potter’s school, a dragon kiln and an industrial kiln constitute the coop - breathing new forms to the earth. Once every four months, a festival will be held to awaken the dragon kiln. The monumental earth of BBC does not diminish; it is instead reborn into pots and bricks. TBC is a celebration of ground as origins with clay as the heart of the development, clay as a conduit and vessel of memory.
