Planning New Places For People

The new exhibition just opened at the Urban Redevelopment Authority charts some big changes to urban developments in Singapore.


In Our Neighbourhoods: A Look Into The Future, there is a strong focus on the anticipated car-lite future, replacing existing infrastructure with greener elements, more mixed aged, networked spaces and also on how to deal with waste.


Centralised vacuum waste collection systems are present in some European countries now, and are already being implemented in Singapore. Imagine a world with no rubbish trucks! But also with a much more effectively waste recycling and treatment system – a critical issue for land constrained and highly dense Singapore.

The exhibition contains some detailed work on specific future planned Singapore developments.


But there is also considerable opportunity for people to provide there thoughts – which is an increasing part of Singapore’s planning approach.
