Forming Cityscapes is a project where designers Jamie Yeo and Gideon Kong obsessively observe and photograph minor urban occurrences in the city of Singapore. These can be seen as forms of appropriation, resistance, improvisation, or critique within spaces or structures implemented at a larger scale. In this eighth collection, they look at how plants behave around structures and how people behave around plants.
