SCDA × NTU Collaborative Research
After a series of discussions in Singapore, SCDA Lab will be embarking on a Research × Build collaboration with the Nanyang Technological Institute (NTU) School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, SMAE. With the goal of further developing the architecture of off-grid spaces and dwellings for living, various possible collaborative research opportunities were shared, which will pair SCDA’s design and construction expertise with NTU’s technological and research capability to realize built prototypes in the coming year.
SCDA launches The Tenda
The Tenda (bahasa for tent) is an ecologically-empathetic retreat created by SCDA to inspire and empower travelers in the exploration of new ways of creating, thinking and living on our finite, green and blue planet. Situated in Kelating village, just minutes from Soo K. Chan’s Soori Bali, the retreat takes shape as a herd of self-sustaining, cabins; or tenda; a discursive provocation of how architecture and design can rally to make palatable off-grid living a real proposition.

Architect Soo K. Chan, recipient of Singapore’s inaugural President’s Design Award, and his firm, SCDA Architects, have recently completed renovations on Singapore’s National Design Centre, a showcase of innovation and encouragement in the possibilities of design. Centrally located in the arts, cultural, learning and entertainment district in the Bras Basah-Bugis area, the National Design Centre will be a nexus for all things design, serving as a lecture hall, space for public exhibitions, and think tank for Singapore’s growing design culture.
