This book examines how institutional and environmental features in neighbourhoods can contribute to social resilience, highlighting the related socio-demographic issues, as well as the infrastructure, planning, design and policies issues. It is divided into three themes – infrastructure, planning, and community. Infrastructure examines how physical features such as parks and street patterns influence neighborliness and resilience, while planning studies how urban design enhances social interactions. Lastly, community discusses policies that can forge social bonds, either through racial integration, grassroots activities, or social service. Overall, the book combines research and empirical work with scholarly models of resilience and governance philosophy, focusing on Singapore’s urban planning and social policies.

A collection of short essays written by the two authors, this book is an unconventional chronicle of the visual arts in Singapore. By venturing into pressing issues and concerns that surround art practice, they journey through episodes from the 19th century to the analysis of significant moments in Singapore’s modern and contemporary art history. Approaching Singapore Art as an ever-evolving question, this book foregrounds the role of its artists in awakening the demand for criticality and active participation in the changing domains of art in society.

The early structures in Singapore were constructed from locally available materials. After British colonisation, more durable materials were used in buildings, which were designed like those built in London or Delhi. Alongside these were the shophouse blocks that filled the grid of the early town. As locals came through the ranks of public service and later struck out on their own, local architecture firms were set up at the turn of the 20th century and by 1958, architecture was taught at the Singapore Polytechnic. The periods of nation-building and global city calibration led to works by both local and foreign architects that now endow the skylines and landscapes of the island- state.

This book examines the crucial role of trade and investment in Singapore’s economy. Using globalisation as a backdrop, the author explains both its economic benefits for Singapore and the vulnerabilities which it creates. The book studies the impact of foreign direct investment on the economy before the Global Financial Crisis occurred, and analyses the structural shifts that took place following that shock. Special attention is paid to the impact of free trade agreements and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) on Singapore’s trade and investment strategy. The book concludes with a look at how Singapore might preserve its place in the new globalised economy.

The story of public housing in Singapore is a unique one. This book chronicles the journey from the early days of prevalent unhygienic slums and crowded squatter settlements to the current landscape where over 80 per cent of the resident population is housed in quality ats spread across the island. Of these, about nine in 10 households own the ats they live in. Central to this story is the Housing and Development Board (HDB), which was established on 1 February 1960 and has since built more than one million ats in the last 58 years. HDB remains committed to its mission of providing affordable homes, creating vibrant and sustainable towns, and promoting the building of active and cohesive communities.
