We live in turbulent times. Cities face climate change and extreme weather events, growing mental health issues, and inter-generational or inter-ethnic conflicts. Studies suggest Blue-Green sensitive design can help to address social and environmental challenges. But the pursuit of quick returns makes it difficult for designers to persuade their stakeholders and partners to value such landscapes in dense cities. Besides relying on regulations, how can we transcend conventional, short-term approaches to use common sense and prioritise qualities like resilience and beauty?
In this lecture, renowned designer Herbert Dreiseitl - most famous in Singapore for his involvement in the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park - shares successful international case studies to explore how we can nurture liveable, regenerative cities in times of social and environmental challenges.
