Singapore is world famous for its planning.
The City Museum showcases some of this, and is housed in the (internally landscaped!) Urban Redevelopment Authority Centre where the Centre for Liveable Cities is based.
Singapore is only one tenth the size of Melbourne, but they’ve done more than ten times the development! The museum does a good job of providing an overview of some of the big scale planning the city-state of now 5.7 million has undertaken.
The biennial Lee Kuan Yew World City prize is also based here. Auckland received a special mention as part of the 2016 prize.
