Taman Jurong Diamond Blocks

Hidden in Taman Jurong is another favourite spot for shutterbugs – the “diamond blocks”. As the name suggests, this icon at Yuan Kuang Road is formed by four public housing blocks connecting into the shape of a diamond. Standing for more than 40 years since 1973, the “diamond blocks” were initially planned for demolition, but were eventually used as rental flats, and now a Covid-19 housing facility. This unique architecture is definitely worth visiting, as it may not be around for long.
