#23 – The history & design of Singapore’s Kranji War Memorial (With Athanasios Tsakonas)

Generations of Singapore students will remember going on learning journeys to the Kranji War Memorial. But few of us know why it’s in Kranji in the first place or how its design came about. Today, we speak to Athanasios Tsakonas, an Australian architect, who has researched the history of Kranji War Memorial’s construction and its perception by various groups in Singapore and abroad.

His book titled “In Honour of War Heroes: Colin St Clair Oakes and the Design of Kranji War Memorial” is now available in bookshops.
