With the government investing a significant budget to infrastructure and greater areas of housing, there is a significant opportunity for those interested in entering the Singaporean design market for commercial structures and recreational places. Because architecture is so intertwined with the construction industry, its economic impact is dependant on the growth of the industry as a whole.
Singapore’s architecture is rich with details that reflect the young country’s aspirations and ongoing search for an uniquely Singaporean identity. The federal government’s tendency of continually replacing fine structures with higher and more contemporary ones is justified by land scarcity combined with increased population density. The pace with which Singapore’s architecture has been reorganised reflects the country’s rapid transformation from a colonial outpost to a bustling metropolis, and while many structures have been demolished, many more remain to provide hints about the creation of a distinct local identity.
Despite the large number of possible contracts to be obtained, industry players must integrate innovation and architectural talents, particularly in Singapore’s land-scarce environment. Architectural firms, on the other hand, must be able to adapt to changing environmental conditions and requirements.
