About This Book

It is of course a truism to say that Singapore is an ever-changing island. This stimulating study ranges widely over the subject and addresses many issues of landscape change that impact on the present and future life of Singapore's inhabitants. Part 1 looks at natural and engineered landscapes including reservoirs, parks and green spaces. Part 2 considers landscapes of community and nationhood including public housing and "heritage areas". Globalisation as a factor in landscape is the subject of Part 3, while Part 4 deals with "forgotten landscapes," including cemeteries and "who or what may have been left behind." Each section is complemented with black and white photographs, sketch maps, reading lists and questions for discussion.
