Biophilic Co-existence in the Garden City
With biophilic design, my aim is to allow the city state to experience the outdoors and nature all whilst remaining safe indoors. Having plants and green all around us in our day-to-day lives elevates Singapore to the real green city it should be.
Singapore is known internationally for its excellent green and sustainable efforts, but is Singapore really a green city? Or, is it possible that Singapore is simply a ‘manicured’ garden that attracts tourists and foreign investors? It is clear that Singapore’s ‘green’ areas are carefully manicured. Now, with the current COVID-19 pandemic and the pause it has inflicted on our daily lives, the idea of a truly green city is something that can be made more prominent in the lives of Singapore’s resident community.
