I joined Bernard Goh’s Singapore Photo Walk outing of March with my son.
Rochor Centre is group of buildings built by the Housing and Development Board of Singapore. It was built and completed in 1977 and consists of 4 blocks painted in vivid colors yellow, green, red and blue.
This is an iconic building in the east side on Singapore center that can be seen by tourists going to Arab Street or Little India.
The buildings comprise habitations, shops and hawkers ( food stalls). On the ground floor you still can find some religious artefacts.
The center has started closing as later this year it will be torn down to give way to a motorway joining the north to the south of the island. A lot of the shops have already relocated, but some are still open. The habitations seems to still be occupied if I can judge by the drying laundry.
The void desk is a classical feature of the HDB blocks, an open area for inhabitants to congregate and do activities.
