DPA is a home-grown architectural practice evolving in tandem with the building of nationhood since the independence of Singapore. Founded in 1967 with a deep concern for the built environment and the need to create architecture of excellence, it aims to enrich the human experience and spirit through its planning and architectural works.

Growing from a single office of a dozen to 1,200 strong in fifteen offices worldwide, we have generated many significant projects over more than 40 years of continued operation; yet the process of critical self-renewal remains in our culture as we seek to stay meaningfully relevant to the society we serve. Through a strong commitment to design excellence, we aspire to make our mark on the global stage by making significant contributions to the field of architecture and to the design environment, with the aim to improve the quality of life of the people who enjoy our work.

Since its inception in 1967, DP Architects (DPA) has been driven by a strong philosophy devoted to human activity and the civic quality of the city. Its designers approach each project as the continuation of an ongoing exploration in shaping the public domain. Its consistency does not attune to stylistic conventions; rather, it pursues a common architectural goal: a sustainable civic society.

DPA has been involved with urban projects of immense scale and increasing diversity of function for five decades. The firm’s recent architectural works are some of the largest of their type in the world: The Dubai Mall at 550,000 square metres is a ‘city within a city’ hosting programmes of shopping, entertainment and leisure, and was in 2013 the world’s most visited leisure destination with 75 million visitors; Resorts World Sentosa, a mixed-use complex in Singapore, comprises five hotels and a number of entertainment centres; a series of some 30 retail mall projects along Singapore’s Orchard Road redeveloped an entire shopping corridor, which receives seven million visitors annually.
