For project (jl) Edgedale Plains is a road in the Punggol area that is flanked by residential housing developments or HDBs as they are commonly known. The flats are grouped into housing estates meant to operate as self-contained satellite towns - in the sense that they have clinics, supermarkets, schools and hawker centres within close proximity to the houses. About 90% of Singaporean households own their own HDB flat - a statistic that is often cited as testament to progressive planning. Hong Sek Chern represents these iconic structures, the pride of a nation, in gradients of brown and black. She partitions the structures and segments them into layers - symbolic of the different lives and harmonious coexistence of a vibrant, multi-racial community that resides in the various blocks.
