'Re-imagining Cities – Urban Design Research in Singapore,' a joint exhibition by the City Form Lab of the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and the Urban Design Module of the Future Cities Laboratory (FCL), Singapore-ETH Centre (SEC), highlights the importance of academic engagement and international knowhow to the planning of Singapore.

The City Form Lab work from SUTD showcases four typical phases of urban design research – data collection, measurement, analysis and design. Examples of data collection include both paper-based and digitized field surveys of built environments in Singapore and in Indonesia, as well as participatory workshops. Measurement demonstrates novel software tools for quantifying built environments characteristics. Analysis projects show how analytics can inform important investment decisions in cities – with a focus on Singapore’s Rail Corridor, downtown Bugis, and pedestrian accessibility. Finally, the design phase illustrates how the Labs’ research results have led to urban design solutions in downtown Surabaya.
