When I first heard about the HDB Gallery, I thought it would be fascinating - knowing Singapore's prowess and pride in its planning. I also imagined how I might design such a place, as a fan (but not a completely uncritical fan) of such planning....More

In the 1960s most people in Singapore lived in dreadful conditions, in homes without sanitation. This is the story of how the country improved, today most live in comfortable apartments. It also explains how the community spirit is built in these new towns. Being Singapore,...More
