Singapore’s urban rainbow. 🏢🌈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s a former housing development that’s being torn down. Glad we got to see it before it’s gone. @visit_singapore #VisitSingapore ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏡 = @conradsingapore

消失的彩虹城堡. The Vanishing Rainbow Castle: watercolor painting. I've been contemplating doing an illustration on Rochor Centre for quite some time but finding the right mood is not easy. I hope I've captured the right feel in this. #leekowfong #kowfong #illustration #watercolorpainting #watercolor #rochorcentre #singapore #vanishingsingapore #rainbow #阿果 #插画 #水彩 #水彩畫 #梧槽坊 #消失的风景

The demolition of Rochor Centre will start tomorrow. A few years ago, while doing the Community Quilts project, @saammm, @ra1nforest and I decided to include Rochor Centre as one of our locations as we knew that it was going to be torn down. We even pushed to have our exhibition on the void deck as a tribute to these buildings. The logistics of this shoot was quite complicated. We had to knock on the doors of residents and ask if they were willing to participate in our project. Once we get their approval (say, Resident A), we would call the other person on the opposite block to ask the resident living on the opposite block (Resident B) for permission to get into their kitchen to shoot Resident A. Thankfully, Sam’s then girlfriend (now wife) @quietly, who was a journalist (therefore had thicker skin than me) was with us and helped to get access. I remember us calling each other on the phone to give directions to our subjects. It was quite an operation. There have been many tributes and documentations about Rochor Centre. I’m just glad we got to do this image. Goodbye for real. . #rochorcentre #communityquilts #rochor #singapore #farewell

Goodbye Rochor Centre. Demolition works for the iconic public housing estate started this morning as a thunderstorm rumbled in the background. For full story, click on link in bio or visit http://str.sg/oMZK 📸: LIM YAOHUI #rochorcentre

Rochor Centre, built in 1977. It was difficult finding an angle for these four buildings that was never taken before. The ambitious attempt saw my drone completely losing signal and activated its RTH function. Well, every time you fly a drone, it could be it's last flight #zegtravelogue #nikonphotographer #nikonphotography #nikon #singaporephotographer #singapore #rochor #rochorcentre #bugis #landscape #landscapephotography #architecture #architecturelovers #oldbuildings #demolition #dronestagram #drone #dronephotography

#Comingupforair // all that remains of Rochor Centre in the heart of Singapore. Six months ago, I can here to capture the early stages of the dismantling of a former Singapore icon: the Rochor Centre, formerly known as ‘Little Johor’ - a popular stopover for Singapore’s visiting northern neighbours. Despite being listed by the Urban Renewal Authority to be protected as a national icon, it eventually has to make way for... an expressway.

Build the rainbow. 🌈 • The Rochor Centre was a business and public housing estate built in 1977 as part of an urban renewal program to provide sufficient housing for Singapore’s increasing population. • It is now in the process of being dismantled to make way for a North-South Expressway and a new commercial development. • #singapore #rochorcentre #giantlego #creativearchitecture #rochor#singaporecity #discoversingapore #visitsingapore #travelsingapore #exploresg #yoursingapore #thisissingapore #singapore_insta #singaporeinsiders #igerssingapore #yourshotphotographer #bbctravel #natgeotravel #tlpicks #ig_bestpicworldtravel #beautifuldestinations #guardiantravelsnaps #lonelyplanet #passionpassport #meettheworld #mycanon #liveforthestory #canoncollective #canonasia #neverstopexploring

Once Upon A Rochor Never lived there nor have any fond memories of going there on a first date. But doing this collection is a way for me to remember a fast disappearing Singapore I once knew and of course, to indulge in my love for pop-pi-li-cious colours! $120 each but...how can anyone bear to break them up...?? $480 for this set of 4 and take ❤️, $96 of the proceeds will go into furnishing the homes of needy families. #chalkpaintedfurniture #rochorcentre #upcycledfurniture #socialenterprisesg #eclecticdecor #eclectichome

Canvas painting, 26

Painted by Erin, age 10 Remembering Rochor Centre Canvas painting, 26 - 30 Dec 2018 Built in 1977 and formerly home to 183 shops and 567 households, Rochor Centre was one of the many public housing from the 1970s designed to take in businesses and residents that were uprooted from slums across the country. On 26 June 2018, demolition work began for this colourful podium-tower-style complex to make way for the upcoming North-South Corridor. Last December, My Art Pencil brings this iconic landmark into our curriculum to mark the closure of our 10th anniversary celebration. #rochorcentre #remembersg #sgmemory #kidspainting #kidsart #canvaspainting #acrylicpainting #easel

Before I move on to a new career, I will be using the next few posts to reflect on my work so far. . . The feature on #rochorcentre in 2015 taught me many lessons that guided my future story selections. . I actually lived in rochor centre for a year in 2012, and I knew I wanted to do something on it. In the second photo, I managed to interview vivian, who lived in an apartment that was essentially two three-room flats. She knocked down the dividing wall and turned it into a jumbo flat, which is something you cannot do now with newer, prefabricated flats. . At the time, so many visual stories on rochor centre were produced, yet most had such an amazing dearth of depth and effort that it made me cringe. Some poly students and professional journalists even asked me for the newsmakers' contacts. . This piece taught me that originality is paramount and that I needed to dig deep to uncover stories and communities that have never been featured before. Even if the same subject has been covered before, you gotta provide treatment and direction to set it apart. That's the only way to stand out. This eventually led me to being extremely anal when i chose stories for living city. . . . #hdb #igsg #sginstagram #yoursingapore #singapore

An event for Year 2018: Demolition of Rochor Estate. Though the residents living in this estate have been relocated to other housing estate, the building still holds memory for many people who used to go there to buy stuffs as there is a shopping area on the ground floor in that estate. This pic was taken before demolition works began in September this year. Miss ya, Rochor Estate. #rochorcentre #rochorestate #rochorbugis #rochorhousingestates #rochordistrict #lostestateinsingapore #goodbyerochorcentre #hereandgone #memoriesofsg #sgmemories #goodbyerochor #hdbflatssg #rememberingrochorcentre #disappearingsg
