About This Book

The most recent collection of articles by renowned Singapore architect and intellectual William Lim, who is rapidly establishing himself as a "post-modernist" thinker. It includes special projects completed between 1998 and 2001. The material in this book embraces a broad range of subjects, touching on culture, society, and urbanism, and presents alternative views informed by the latest debates on glocality, post-modernity and social justice. In the wake of globalisation, Asia must embrace a profound intellectual debate of alternatives that does not lend itself to hegemonic, unilinear thinking. The Asian alternative perspective offers no simple answer, no singular pathway, but more significantly, a diversity of views and an open dialogue that could propel the direction of future intellectual discourse. The author offers some of his perspectives in this discourse.
