The story of Swan & Maclaren Architects has been unfolding for over 130 years and continues to this day. Since its founding the firm has managed to prosper and grow through the impact of two world wars as well as Singapores move from a Colony to Independent Nationhood, alongside the resulting shifts in the needs of clients and the city state alike. It is perhaps from the direction of leadership and an approach to design in each era, where a questioning of who, what, and why in a systematic way led the architects to creative value added design solutions. Longevity, as a firm, seems only possible with Swan & Maclaren searching at the core of commission to establish an authentic approach to design solutions within a corporate framework of clients and project needs.

Architecture in Process illustrates a range of over 35 recent projects produced under this questioning approach to problem solving in architecture and design over the past ten years. While also introducing us to the work of the firm from the mid-century period that led up to the current design leadership, as the sixth generation to carry the legacy of that very same firm Archibald Alexander Swan & James Waddell Boyd Maclaren started in 1892.
