URBAN PLANNING
Singapore is a modern and global island-state, internationally recognised as one of the most liveable cities in the world. Since its independence, Singapore’s journey towards its present-day urban landscape has been characterised by the political will to tackle pressing priorities together with bold professional initiatives in land planning. This book examines the significant role that land planning plays in Singapore’s physical transformation and economic development, while also exploring future challenges in the light of demographic changes, technological advances and environmental pressures.
