Abstract: the aim of this thesis project is to design a 'LIVE, WORK, SELL' mixed-used environment in Bras Basah, Bugis district (singapore) for different disciplines of artists. Located along the significant commercial belt, this programmatic intervention of design engages both arts and commerce; acts as a catalyst to engage the streets; and provides a public domain that allows exposure of arts and events for general public to appreciate, therefore improving the arts scene and encouraging night activities. It deals with the issues of existing site programmes that are detached from the public streets, therefore, lacking public domain to gather the flux of diverse people and to demonstrate public events, festivals and art productions. Existing culture and environment of art schools and art venues are either specialised or much internalised that are visited or appreciated by mostly specific and interested people. The design is part of a proposed cultural walk,extending from the commercial belt which transits between the institutionalised arts in Bugis to the traditional arts and craft in the neighbour district Little India ( stretching from LASALLE college to shophouses) across a huge vehicular infrastructure and Rochor river canal that have been a problematic separator. Being part of this experience walk, the design project exhibits the on-going process of art productions from raw materials to trial- and -errors, experimental pieces to finished products. Located between the two districts along the commercial belt and the river, the design is able to capitalise on the rich diversity of people, history relevance, culture developments, nature resources and entertainment activities which are (five) valuable assets of the Arts and Entertainment district.
