Interested in the cycle of redevelopment that is endemic to the life of Asian global cities, Jason Wee intends to investigate the phases of demolition, clearance, and destruction triggered by urban renewals and the complex ways in which they affect our understanding of ecology, urban planning, memory, and architecture. Starting from Singapore where destruction in the name of development results particularly aggressive, Wee will research these destructive events focusing on the underlying sets of laws, policies, procedures and technologies—involving a wide variety of experts such as geologists, architects, urban planners as well as financial and legal agencies— that determine them. His residency at the NTU CCA Singapore is inscribed within a longer-term comparative research project titled The City That Eats Itself, Lives, for which he will also examine the cases of Seoul, Delhi, Bangkok, Jaffa, and Tokyo.
