Juror’s Prize | The Substation BIG4ENBLOC Insta-Film Competition supported by the Goethe-Institut Singapore | Award ceremony on 23rd March 2019

An insta-film response to the Big Four—Pearl Bank Apartments, People's Park Complex, Golden Mile Complex and Golden Mile Tower— a set of iconic megastructures under threat of demolition due to en bloc redevelopment.

We felt that a raw and brute treatment to cover these architectural innovations that embody “brutalism” and “metabolism” was apt. We challenged ourselves to convey concepts of self-destruction, numbered days, and loss of identity within 40 seconds. We hope that our daring approach would leave the audience pondering about the possible consequences of demolishing modernist icons and unrooting communities.
