Singapore, also known as the “Little Red Dot,” is a city-state with a high population density within a relatively small land area. Yet, despite its size, Singapore is home to more than 5.7 million residents, and its population continues to grow. To accommodate its citizens and maintain a high standard of living, the city has adopted innovative urban planning strategies that balance economic needs with quality of life.
One such strategy is vertical development, which entails the construction of numerous high-rise residential and commercial buildings. In addition, Singapore has preserved green spaces and parks, balancing the dense urban environment with natural escapes. The city’s efficient public transportation system is the backbone of its urban infrastructure, reducing traffic congestion and promoting sustainable practices.
