Abstract: The thesis aims to utilize a closed landfill as the action-site, where post-landfill ecologies are surfaced as elements in a new form of urban park. In the thesis preparation, it was discovered that beneath the success of Singapore’s waste management system, there are gaps in the citizen’s psychological relation to waste. The result is a much higher per capita waste generation compared to her Southeast Asian Neighbors. Through the use of site remediation, research and artist facilities, the thesis aims to reconnect the public with the realities of waste. Understanding that each individual will have different receptivity to the idea, the circulation is laid out in layers where the individual have a choice of how far they want to step out of their comfort zone. The sheet pile technology associated with excavation works are developed into surfaces that function as interpretative spaces.
