Q: Can we print our Jpgmag stories ?

A: Do you know?

Not so much my backyard but more my "front lawn" - except that I don't own a lawn either.

Like about 90 percent of people in Singapore, I live in a government-built high rise apartment called an HDB flat, HDB being the Housing and Development Board.

My unit is on the 12th and uppermost floor of this apartment block.

The maroon/yellow column in the middle of this picture is the lift column. It was added only about two years ago as the original block of flats, built over 30 years ago, had lifts that only stopped on the 1.5th, 5.5th and 10.5th floor. Now, in view of an aging population, the HDB has "upgraded" the lifts to have them stop at every floor.

For me, the added bonus of this LUP (Lift Upgrading Programme - Singaporeans love acronyms) is that there is now a new wall to catch the shadow of the nearby tree. When I return home in the late afternoon, it is quite a sight.


This is part of a "Nature. Architecture" series that I am working on, to show the relationship between plants and buildings as well as other man-made structures and how they enhance each other.
