Unlikely incidents between the urban and the natural, between concrete, humans and plants. 

In the Forming Cityscapes project, graphic designers Jamie Yeo and Gideon Kong obsessively observe and photograph minor urban occurrences in Singapore which possibly challenge popular ideas about the city being "clean and green" or inauthentic.

No matter how much planning and designing is carried out, nature finds a way to intervene. Humans also are continually adapting and improvising in urban spaces, subverting top-down planning for their own purposes.

In this instalment, plants are the focus. Whether growing wild or carefully tended, vegetation in the city is often taken for granted. Here we see them serve dual functions as drying racks, shoe hangers, trash receptacles, and seasonal holiday decorations.
