P.A.C is a progressive design office engaging in the diverse field of Architecture, Urbanism and Design. Prior to establishing P.A.C, the practice was operating as Type0 Design Collaborative in the UK. In 2009, P.A.C moved to Singapore to work on a diverse range of projects across Asia from urban and resort planning to localised adaptive refurbishments. At the core of our architectural principle and every design process we engage in is the critical analysis and appraisal of Building Types and their effects on the contemporary city. We design through narratives that address real issues concerning urban, cultural and political life within the City. This actively integrates stakeholders such as users, clients and specialists as vital players in the design process. Constraints and economies become important ingredients that enrich the projects. We wholly embrace these conditions as generative forces that shape our formal ideas and strategies. The concepts that we develop out of this process are thus inherently contextual. We strive for an expression of architecture where form follows purpose; in the sense that the artefact should and must represent its ideas and strategies in the most direct way possible through formal reinterpretations, structural manipulations and material organisations. It is through such persistency and rigour that we believe new typologies can arise. The design process that PAC undertakes is open-ended and can operate at multiple scales from urban design to furniture. Currently, PAC is exploring a diversity of conditions across Asia including a mountain ski resort in China, an educational centre in Ladakh, India and several commercial and residential projects in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.
