Art in Transit: “Havelock Traces” by Anonymous

‘Havelock Traces’ attempts to recreate the pre-independence buildings of the Havelock precinct within the station itself. It encourages inquiry into the history of the area and the community that used to exist there, and the impact of urban renewal.

Archival drawings of the ‘lost’ buildings of Havelock Road provided a starting point for the artwork. These drawings offer a glimpse into what town planning was like in pre-independence Singapore and how it affected the way we lived and worked. As commuters enter the station from the different entrances, they will encounter fragments of buildings and structures that offer a glimpse into the past.

Archival drawings courtesy of Building Control Division collection, National Archives of Singapore. Archival drawings have been modified for the purpose of creating the artwork.
