Ahead of the imminent opening of Surbana Jurong Campus, AD China followed Moshe Safdie on one of his recent trips to Singapore, where they revisited his previous projects in the country.

His approach to design in Singapore has always centered around individual's experience of a space, prioritizing it over mere form or shape.
