Present projects address heritage politics in Singapore; aesthetics and models in the national imagination; and ‘Vulnerability’ as a concept in political theory. He reads Politics, Philosophy & Law at King’s College London, and is editor of the programme’s journal. His latest writing, ‘Defamiliarising the Architectural Object’, is forthcoming in STAPLE.
