Abstract: The title of this dissertation is based on the Filipino term for ‘space’ in Singapore. As a community on foreign soil, Filipinos here have had to adapt to local living conditions and recreate spaces for themselves. This dissertation is about how Filipinos have created Ispasiyos for themselves by changing usage patterns of spaces in the city. We hypothesize that there has an attempt to recreate a “Promenade” based on Christopher Alexander’s “A Pattern Language” in Singapore on Orchard Road. Recreating the Promenade is an urban instinct intrinsic to Latin cultures, and has manifested successfully in Hong Kong, where a similar Filipino Diaspora exists.
