Our Student Projects

Our Own by Zhou Anqi

自己人 / OUR OWN is a space designed for diminishing Chinese clans in Singapore, aimed at recruiting and onboarding new members, sustaining the association, providing new opportunities and meaning, as well as inspiring young Singaporeans to learn about their history and roots. Inspired by Chinese symbols and local shophouses, where clans are mostly located, the concept revolves around the theme of unity and reunion, no matter the location of the ancestral home, dialect or surname.
