Foreword & Messages

Message by President, Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects (SILA)

ADBC2021_MS05_SILA_PixCongratulations on the latest edition of the Singapore Source Book for Architects, Designers & Building Contractors 2020/2021.

In the next decade, Singapore will transform from a “city in a garden” to a “city in nature” where more plant life and nature will be integrated into our urbanised areas. This is the next step forward where we have to enhance our strategies to manage the different demands of urbanisation, conservation of our natural habitats and mitigating climate change.

Just as Landscape Architects will be critically called upon during this key transformation for our professional expertise in amalgamating creative place-making with the conservation of our natural capital, this source book will also undoubtedly be one of the valuable resources we and our compatriots in the built environment come to for information, inspiration and collaboration.”
