mAAN*Y Singapore 2010 – Let's not talk about architecture

How does the global city react to the specific culture and context of its locality? How will it mitigate the building of economically motivated iconic structures and the living vitality of public spaces? How will it deal with the influx of new cultural influences and ideas? These are the questions that the international ideas competition which is part of the mAAN*Y Singapore 2010 event hopes to explore.
