Since its inception in 1967, DP has designed many of the country’s most important public projects and notable landmarks. Each of these has played a critical role in shaping Singapore’s civic urban landscape and downtown core, by linking spaces of the city in the formation of a continuous urban fabric. These sites serve as social and cultural anchors for Singapore and as public nodes of human density that have contributed greatly to the city’s success. DP has also been involved with urban projects of immense scale and increasing diversity of function; some of the firm’s works are the largest of their type in the world.
DPA has a long history in a wide variety of projects remarkable in its diversity of scale and typology.
To further deepen the critical understanding and appreciation of the profession, DP has formed 10 building typology research groups to generate research and develop expertise in key design typologies – namely, Retail and Mixed Development; Residential; Healthcare; Hospitality; Civic, Community, Sports & Art; Commercial & Office; Education; Transport Infrastructure Architecture; Theme Parks; and Urban Planning.
These 10 dedicated focus groups research developments in technology, techniques, trends and user needs of their identified typology and develop architectural design unique to the typology. A newly formed Design Intelligence department further contributes to the exploration and research into areas of new hybrid typologies, digital prototyping and advanced geometry.
This concerted endeavour reinforces the practice’s creative process and focus on specialisation, and is further aided by a robust support network of departments such as Design, Documentation and Specification, Contracts and Practice and Code Compliance and Quality.

After designing Crow’s Hilton Anatole (formerly Loews Anatole), a Dallas landmark, Wilson and her associates designed The Palace of the Lost city in South Africa, which solidified the firm’s global footprint.
Since then, Wilson Associates has designed some of the world’s most iconic addresses across the globe. From a designer hotel inside the world’s tallest building to royal palaces and Michelin-star restaurants, the firm’s legacy is rooted in a history of excellence.
