Abstract: In light of the current Maker’s Movement, a new wave of DIY culture has hit the world by storm, even on the shores of Singapore. Why has DIY made a comeback and what is its relevance in today’s society? It becomes of interest to examine what made for the overwhelming success of the movement and what it means to be a maker today. Through its documentation, this essay seeks out the essential values of DIY. This includes self empowerment and individualization, values which made the movement so appealing in the current world of mass produced commodities. While DIY culture in Singapore is concentrated mainly in indie craft and design, there is potential for it to affect the architectural scene, especially in the way we live. The research will therefore seek to address the shortcomings of Singapore’s public housing scene, by looking into the possibilities and benefits of DIY housing.
