Up Close with Raymond Woo
Monday, 2 October, 2017
Designer of the Year recipient Raymond Woo shared his journey as an architect in a cosy session at the library@orchard in Orchard Gateway. The event was packed out by design enthusiasts, architects and design students. It was successfully held on the 23rd of September.
The 78-year-old’s jovial personality and playful sense of humour came through as he walked everyone through the highlights of his illustrious four-decade-long career as one of Singapore’s veteran architects, touching on well-loved projects like Singapore Science Centre, Loyang Valley Apartments, Ngee Ann City and many other buildings in the CDB area.
The talk ended with a light-hearted Q & A segment that members of the audience enthusiastically participated in, asking in depth questions about his various projects. PDA 2016 publications were distributed to all who participated in the Q & A. A number of admirers stayed back to chat, and even sought his autograph – a surprise for the usually quiet and low-key architect!
