A cartoon drawn by architecture students from Singapore Polytechnic. This was published in RUMAH, the journal of the Society of Malayan Architects, in the October issue, Volume 5, across pages 44 to 45.
According to one of its creators, Wee Chwee Heng, such free association drawings were usually done over a night when the students hung out. These "commentaries" ranged from critiques of local architecture, complaints about student life and even gossip about lecturers.
"You get four people sitting around a table, it was a graphic of an idea. We just draw it. If I say something, I draw my part, he will draw his part," he said. "Whatever we talk about, we jot down."
In this cartoon structured around the Roman Pantheon, a classical architecture form, the students suggest the "Pollyechnik for sale". These perhaps reflected the anxieties of the 1962 "Report of the Commission of Inquiry into Vocational and Technical Education" where there was discussion of splitting courses between the polytechnic and that of the University of Singapore.
