An essay by Kenneth Tay around the technological, geopolitical, and logistical infrastructures/spaces of Singapore.

The booklet is designed after a 1972 press release document "Singapore: Global City" which this work departs from. The result is a generally ubiquitous-looking booklet that attempts a physical approximation of the original document that is only digitally accessible today. This positions both the contents and design as a kind of "mandatory update" to Singapore's current condition since 1972.

Designed as a parallel edition to Flat Spaces, a condensed edited lecture version of the same research.
