dc.description.abstractIn ancient times, the coastal municipalities and their ports shared an intimate connection with the element of water in several aspects of functionality and spatial planning. Many of these villages along the shoreline arose out of the reliance on water and subsequently attributed their growth to water commerce and commute. In today’s urbanized world, however, the need to design against disasters from water has caused a separation of the water from our urban environment. This paper aims to put together the factors in an attempt to understand the interaction that dwellers within the coastal settlements had with the water in their immediate environment. By understanding how their organization and interactions, this dissertation seeks to compare and critique their quality of experience against that in our 21st century. This dissertation will employ the Punggol 21 Plus project as a tool to determine if such experiences have been retained or lost in today’s context. The Punggol 21 Plus project is still an ongoing project therefore analysis will be done through plan and massing analysis. Offering a range of housing types, Punggol Watertown and the new communal spaces along the promenade aims to provide an attractive and vibrant waterfront living environment. This dissertation aims to assess the government’s investment on Punggol 21 Plus and the effects of Punggol 21 Plus and its waterfront living on the experiential quality of the residents. Through the findings, it can be determined whether the government should incept similar concepts in other parts of Singapore. The relationship between the water and the adjacent areas can be further explored to create spaces that allow for more integrated and enhanced experience with the water.
