Abstract: This thesis seeks to explore the notion of regenerative architectural interventions in the context of addressing ecological, physical and social landscapes that have been violated. In particular, it addresses the scenario of the nature reserve forests in Singapore which have been dissected by the Bukit Timah Expressway, thus cutting off habitat, landscape and recreational connectivity for people and wildlife. The implications of this situation are serious, considering the paucity of forest areas and its wildlife in Singapore. Thus, this project is intended to serve on 2 levels - itself as a medium of restoration of landscape integrity, and also as a platform for biodiversity and eco-connector research / education. It aims to be an regenerative interface and connector between nature and the built environment. It is conceived as a series of eco-connector bridges that will facilitate habitat connectivity and wildlife movement. These bridges will also house a biodiversity research and education hub that allows live observation of wildlife. Additionally, the project will also include a visitor centre
