About The Machinist project
Through the lens of design, the book 'The Machinist' documents the stories of a lathe machinist and his community in the auto and ship repair district of Jalan Besar. Oral transcripts and architectural drawings lend a glimpse into their tales of labour and communal spirit. We learn how they come to deddicate their entire lives to mastering a skill, and question the meaning of craft in a rapidly chaning urban context.
