about this item

Singapore is undergoing rapid urbanization, including the construction of new buildings and infrastructure and the renovation of existing structures. These physical changes become interwoven within the “built fabric” of the evolving city, reflecting an ever-changing social and cultural landscape. At the same time, the ecological systems of the city interact with these changes and themselves change over time.
            A thorough and visually compelling account of Singapore’s rapid urban development, Singapore’s Building Stock analyzes the city’s transformation, drawing on a wealth of sources, including historic maps and surveys, aerial photographs, planning documents, and contemporary building surveys. The book offers three perspectives in the form of different spatial scales—the territory, the district, and the building—and insightful contributions by the books editors, Uta Hassler and Iris Belle, and other renowned experts on art, architecture, and urbanization.
