50 Years of Urban Planning in Singapore
- About the Editor
50 Years of Urban Planning in Singapore is an accessible and comprehensive volume on Singapore's planning approach to urbanisation.
Organised into three parts, the first section of the volume—called "Paradigms, Policies, and Processes"—provides an overview of the ideologies and strategies underpinning urban planning in Singapore.
The second section, "The Built Environment as a Sum of Parts", delves into the key land-use sectors of Singapore's urban planning system; and the third section, "Urban Complexities and Creative Solutions", examines the challenges and considerations of planning for the Singapore of tomorrow.
This volume brings together the diverse perspectives of practitioners and academics in the professional and research fields of planning, architecture, urbanism, and city-making.
