No More Free Space?

Singapore’s tropical high-density urban environment serves as both the context and inspiration for architects and designers to innovate new sensorial experiences through various dimensions. They borrow free natural resources like light, air and water to refresh our senses; they tap social capital to bring joy and excitement of being part of society. They imagine spaces that did not exist by going upwards, sideways or underground. The 12 selected projects are presented through a series of conversations between the architects, the commissioners and the users, illustrating diverse approaches in creating delightful free spaces despite constraints.
