The Rise of “Mondrian” Houses
A look into the phenomenon of Singapore flats being painted in the style of artist Piet Mondrian. Is the Housing Development Board (HDB) running out of paint ideas? — I was at Yishun the other day, and I captured some footage in one of its neighbourhoods. The buildings there exude a certain cheeriness, reminiscent of adding rainbow sprinkles to a vanilla soft serve. These structures are mostly white, adorned with splashes of blue, red, yellow, and green paint.
