Bartlett School of Architecture student Finbarr Fallon’s Subterranean Singapore is an existential innovation to the crisis of land scarcity in the Asian city-state.

Delivered as part of the architectural school’s Unit 24 program, the work is presented as a ‘speculative look’ at a possible underground solution to the decreasing availability of land and rising pollution. Rather than reaching toward the filth-clouded skies, Fallon’s work delves into the depths of our planet. The conceptual visions are reminiscent of a Sci-Fi noir film scene, the darkly lit visions sharing a physically inversive likeliness to the dystopian apartment block from J.G. Ballard’s novel HIGH-RISE.
