    Hi Guys,

    I am going around Singapore to take some architecture shots of buildings. Do you know of any unique buildings that's worth giving a shot?

    Thanks!

    to me i would suggest indoor architecture and you can approach hotels and ask if they allow u to shoot as per guest would have done. Indoor architecture will be very fun to shoot especially with ultra wide angles. just my little sharing part

    Tiong Bahru SIT buildings would be a nice place to start for some art deco style buildings. China town for some shop house clutter. I think there are some buildings in Mt Sophia that is worth looking at too. The new La salle and toy museum in Bugis area are nice for its funky facades.

    If you want those typical postcard kind of buildings,(e.g.esplanade, fullerton etc etc) look for those tourist flyers or bookshops on photography in Singapore.

    If you're willing to travel to far west of Singapore, go and visit Nanyang Technological University, there's one School of Art and Design Media.

    Thanks!
    Every building is unique in its own right. You just have to train yourself to identify their qualities and find ways to photograph them. Look at what other people have been doing for reference.

    open your eyes..

    but that said, some of the more commonly taken shots of buildings are of the esplanade, city hall, chopsticks memorial (if you consider it a building), various churches in the cbd area. you can also try istana woodneuk if it is still available, la salle building looks good and interesting. and our national library at bugis.. the only thing is for the last one the security guards may hassle you if you are mr obvious. there's many more,of course
