Of all theatres in the bygone era, The Capitol is especially nostalgic and well loved by Singaporeans who remember it fondly as a place for rendezvous and socialisation. It is also an unforgettable landmark that once boasted the nation’s largest seating capacity and superior theatrical technologies.
When the area was slated for redevelopment, award-winning architectural firm WOHA commissioned &Larry to design a book for its proposal.
The result is a stunningly oversized volume that showcased classic elegance against bold and modern graphic representations. Visually glorifying a theatre earmarked for redevelopment, the design gave readers a spirited glimpse into the proposed evolution of Singapore’s grand dame in entertainment history.
