A complex yet impressive picture emerges beyond political boundaries and conflicting national interest. Indeed by seeing the region as one cohesive landscape with distinct formal and spatial characteristics composed of longstanding histories, peoples and economies, the architecture of the Singapore Metropolitan Region reveals its interconnected complexity painting a picture of a region wrestling between the first and third world.
