Socio-technical Transition of Singapore Public Housing Building Technology Innovation, 1960 – 1995

This paper reports on the research conducted on building technology innovation during Singapore’s early decades of public housing development, 1960 – 1995. Taking an historical perspective and insights from Science and Technology Studies, it investigates the growth of innovation change in Singapore public housing and how this responded to social needs using a combination of data sources including archival materials and personal interviews. This working paper is authored by Jane M. Jacobs, Professor of Urban Studies, Yale-NUS College & Visiting Fellow, Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities, SUTD and Belinda Yuen, Professorial Fellow and Research Director, Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities, SUTD.

What is a City For?

Dr. Kotkin reviews the concept of “living well” in the context of what makes a city great. He explores these issues in the “post‐familial city” and the implications on equality, sustainability and happiness. Dr. Kotkin is a Distinguished Presidential Fellow in Urban Futures at Chapman University and the Executive Editor of New Geography.

To promote empirical research on cities and urban issues, LKYCIC has launched the LKYCIC Research Paper Series, featuring publications by our Centre’s researchers. Through this series, we hope to reach out to a wider audience, share the exciting research that we do at the Centre and encourage increased publication and rapid circulation of our work.

Politics of Housing: Prospects for right to the city in Jakarta

Using the case study of Jakarta, this exploratory paper seeks to understand the extent to which changing state-society relations help the marginalised claim their right to the city. It argues that everyday level state-society interactions between citizens, NGOs, and state actors, informed by differential notions of the housing issue, are crucial to increasing the welfare of these urban residents and their access to the city. However, there are limitations and implications as societal and state actors cope with the challenges of rapid urbanisation. This research paper is authored by Irna Nurlina Masron, Research Associate, Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities, SUTD.
