Nature/architecture fusion in Club St laneway

Next time you’re walking down South Bridge Road, Chinatown, take a detour down the laneway that runs parallel and stretches between Mohd Ali Lane and Ann Siang Hill. Your eyes as well as your ears will thank you! An incredible environment has grown at the back of the shophouses. It’s a superb example of the delightful conditions that can arise when things are left alone to mature without interference.

Virile tropical vegetation has plugged into and wrapped around built forms. The fusion provides shelter and supports bird life. It may not be the best thing for the longevity of the architecture, but it’s amazing to see and experience. Here are some photos I took yesterday.
