In the session, Ella Raidel and Jerome Ng reflects on their films, Double Happiness (2014) and Metabolist Regeneration of a Dementia Nation (2020) respectively, and its implications and suggestions towards the pertinent issues of conservation, urbanisation, global capital, and the environment. Here, buildings function as history books, speculative research and design are used as an architectural tool, and the cinematic lens provides a mode of recreating and critiquing the rapidly changing world around us. The Q&A delves into issues of conservation, communities, and how sites of heritage should be treated keeping in mind various commercial, global, material, and social concerns.
