Streamline Moderne, or Art Moderne, was a late type of the Art Deco architecture and design that emerged in the 1930s. Its minimalistic architectural style abandoned the sometimes lavish decoration of the Art Deco movement in favour of simple curving forms, long horizontal lines, and sometimes nautical elements. Influenced from a period where driving a car, taking a plane or a cruise represented the pinnacle of modern life, buildings resemble automobiles, ocean liners or airplanes.
The Tiong Bahru area is one of the first mass public housing projects in Singapore. Constructed by the Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT) in the 1930s, the buildings were heavily inspired by the a Streamline Moderne style.
In our poster, we can see a side view of a typical block in Tiong Bahru. The round porthole windows of the outside staircase is an example of the nautical elements found in the Streamline Moderne style.
