He’s A Super Trooper

So what’s architecture got to do with Star Wars?

For one, they are about space. And for Clement Lim, 39, executive architect at the Architecture and Urban Design Excellence Department, Urban Redevelopment Authority, and a major Star Wars fan, both his passions are a way to see life, have fun and explore new personal and professional limits.

The costuming enthusiast has the habit of lugging his trusty Stormtrooper helmet with him everywhere he travels.

“It all started as a reaction to those typical holiday shots, you know, pictures of people with the same angle and smile posing in front of buildings. I wanted to satirise these ‘clones’ by being one myself! So the helmet followed me on my honeymoon, and the rest, as they say, is history,” he explained.

Clement now has a collection of unique travel photos of him in the distinctive helmet. For him, it’s all part of the adventure that is life.

“It tells a story about my passions and links all the cities I travel to,” he said. “As an architect, you’re always trying to connect and engage with people. When you dare to do something different outside of work, you see things in new perspectives and also remember to inject some fun into the everyday.”
