This Singapore university looks like something right out of the future.

The rounded rooms came after a visit to the university, which was designed in the ‘80s when this structuralist design style was quite modern. We designed with certain curvatures and used different pigments as well as a retardant. So once we started working on the building, we started using metric modeling to reduce the number of curvatures, because each of the classrooms are unique. We got something like 57 classrooms with different shapes. Then we had 1,050 panels with different façade pedants, so we decided to reduce the number of curvatures to 10 curvatures. Then we developed a system where you could inlay rubber strips in different positions to generate shapes and basically did each of the 1,050 panels onsite, based on our elevation switch.
