The topic of this project is about the marginalised community in Singapore. Marginalised means being neglected by society and feel powerless. There are different types of a marginalised community and the project will be focusing on the underprivileged people in relation to Singapore’s poverty. The site will be at Jalan Kukoh, comprising rental flats and also one of the poorest neighbourhood in Singapore.
Singapore is a first-world country and has been highly recognised and valued for its wealth. However, there is a side that often remains hidden, which is poverty. Poverty such as income inequality has been a worrying problem in Singapore for many years. Although Singapore may be a wealthy country, however, there are still so many underprivileged people in society. Even with the government policies to help the poor, their wellbeing is often neglected. So how do we help this marginalised community with their wellbeing?
