A S$6-million interdisciplinary research programme with team members from architecture, humanities and engineering, to develop new strategies and platforms to enable public housing estates to become vibrant collaborative communities, replicating the spirit of the old ‘kampung’ (village) with their strong community care and resilience. Divided into 4 projects, the 3-year collaboration with HDB will help to steer future town planning and housing design. This program was highlighted by the Minister for Education Mr. Ong Ye Kung as an example of innovative interdisciplinary research project in Singapore.
