Abstract: Marina Bay is a parcel of reclaimed land in the city that was reclaimed in 1970s and was left undeveloped for decades even though the city was growing at a rapid rate. Even though reclamation work was completed in 1980, the first major development was completed in 2000. During these twenty years, there was a need to find a purpose for the land while it sat in the ‘front yard’ of the city. Viewed as a land of opportunities, the state has intentionally carried out a series of carefully crafted work. The imposition of these works is thus seen as a measure to hold back development of Marina South in 1980. This paper will attempt to examine how and why reclaimed land at Marina Bay was left in a state for twenty years, where the potential of the land was not fully realised from 1980 to 2000. It will do so by uncovering the events that happened which shaped Marina Bay after reclamation and before the development of Marina South and East in the 21st century.By using photographic and written evidence from articles and reports, it will attempt to question how the landscape was planned and eventually formed, thus viewing it from a new perspective.
