OMA unveils 'fat chip' housing scheme for Singapore

Rem Koolhaas’ Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) has unveiled a 32-block residential development in Singapore.

The 170,000m2 project, which resembles a pile of fat gastro-pub-style chips stacked in a six hexagonal clusters, will house 1,000 apartments on an 8ha site between the National University and downtown Singapore.
