About This Project

Between 2015-2016 Turquoise Mountain, an INGO that works to preserve and regenerate cultural heritage, restored 491-501 Merchant Street, a beautiful pre-war building in Yangon’s historic Downtown area.

The project trained workers in international conservation standards from architectural carpentry to lime plaster and brickwork. It also aimed to sustain the living heritage of the building’s inhabitants: a multi-racial and multicultural mix retailers, tea shop owners, and long-term tenants.

Bridge were brought in to document the process on film, provide a short film documenting the lives of the inhabitants and to collaborate on the launch exhibition with Virginia Henderson, Tim Webster and Annalivia Cullinan.
