In March 2014, ULI Singapore and the Centre for Liveable Cities conducted a collaborative research study with renowned Danish architect and urban designer Jan Gehl. The purpose of this study is to formulate principles for improving walkability and bikeability in Singapore, a high density city in the tropics.
The research process involved engaging the community through two workshops. At the “Prepshop”, we gathered 49 participants from the private sector, government, and civic groups to discuss perceptions, issues, and ideas on active mobility in Singapore and identify potential improvements. Jan Gehl led the subsequent “Bikeshop” cycling site study with 55 participants, to observe and discuss challenges and strategies for bicycling on site at Ang Mo Kio Town, Singapore. Lessons and strategies distilled from the research process aim to be applicable to Singapore and other high density tropical cities.
ULI is pleased to invite you to the release of the research findings on Monday, 2 June. The event will feature a presentation of the research recommendations and a response panel of esteemed industry leaders, who will comment on the research results and share their expert perspectives. Speakers include:
