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!

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.
