Discipline the City

From the school uniform to this season’s must have accessory, fashion embodies codes and cultures that discipline the bodies and communities that they adorn. What are the “uniforms" that are commonly worn (but not always recognised) in Singapore today, and how might values, norms and expectations be woven into their design? This workshop is no mere trend-spotting exercise, but ventures into the world of design fiction to speculate what uniforms we will need to live in Singapore come 2065.


This workshop is open to all.
