As the culminating project for twelve NUS Department of Architecture Year Two students, their five-month long, individual studies of the Gillman Barracks led to the conception of twelve design proposals for what Gillman Barracks could be.
 
The parameters for the design proposals are defined by discovering and highlighting the ‘essence’ of the Gillman Barracks.  That is, what are the needs of art galleries/centres, artists and art visitors at the Gillman Barracks?  As well as, what architectural interventions could be necessary to create a better experience for art galleries/centres, art world professionals, artists and art visitors?
 
The architectural design proposals aim at a sense of commune, i.e. a sharing of space.  Specifically, the proposals are premised on conceiving a shared dwelling for an artist and a researcher.  In this manner, an idea of art as being an opportunity for cross-disciplinary dialogue is fostered.  The eventual outcome is an aspiration for the Gillman Barracks to create an inclusive, nurturing ecosystem for the Singapore artistic scene.
