About

FIVEFOOTWAY is a journal about Asian cities.

Founded by Adib Jalal and JJ Yeo in 2007, the blog featured interviews, essays and explorations about architecture and urban design in Asia. In 2012, with the new editorial team of Justin Zhuang, Rachel Koh and Mark de Winne, the blog evolved to become a subscription-based online magazine and explored the topic of urbanism in Asian cities through expanded mediums such as fiction, infographics and photo-essays. A thought leader in the Singapore architecture scene, the team presented its ideas at various platforms and co-founder, Adib Jalal, was invited to direct Singapore’s annual festival of ideas about the city, Archifest in 2012.

With resources being a challenge, FIVEFOOTWAY ceased operations after 7 years in 2014.
