Auspicious beginnings…

Slick with moonsweat I stumbled into the abode of the Unspoken. Layers of hopping webs obscured my view, only being able to guess at shapes and tumbles in twill light. None of any foes showed through, leaving me besweated and shaking. The sounds and aromas of the Walpurg night floated richly in the air. Not all was lost, time was still an ally.

I am not sure if you are familiar with this building but it stands out like the proverbial – what’s its –  very much art-deco and reminiscent of other 1920s architecture – certainly the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building – it is nonetheless an oddity. I urge you to go and look at it if you are in Singapore. I will upload some internal shots as well in my next post.

Info about the building:

Parkview Square is an office building located in the Downtown Core Planning Area, Central Region, Singapore. It is situated along North Bridge Road, and is near the major commercial hub at Marina Centre. It is next to Bugis MRT Station, Bugis Junction, and The Gateway, and straddles the Rochor Road and Ophir Road corridor.

Parkview Square was designed by the US firm James Adams Design, together with DP Architects of Singapore.

It was built at a cost of SGD$87.93 million.

It was built as the last major project enterprised by the late Mr. C. S. Hwang, a Taiwanese tycoon chairman of Chyau Fwu Group.
