Abstract: As Singapore rides on the wave of placemaking in response to placelessness and car- centric urbanism, placemaking programmes have gained considerable media attention as individuals and organisations begin to create vibrant public spaces. As Singapore continues to leverage on placemaking to validate community collaboration and partnerships, there is an imperative to look into the future of placemaking in Singapore. Although many research studies have attempted to address its succession, none have been contextualised to Singapore’s placemaking initiatives. Hence, this study aims to examine the future of the placemaking movement in Singapore by studying existing challenges and successes. Furthermore, with deeper analysis into the placemaking scene, it allows for greater understanding towards perceptions of placemakers thereby encouraging more effective suggestions to secure the future of placemaking in Singapore. In order to do so, the core of this study will be based on case study interviews with placemaking practitioners, supported by literature reviews. Content analysis is conducted to derive thematic similarities, so as to allow for comprehensive analysis into the placemaking movement in Singapore. The study found despite placemaking being a nascent approach in designing and managing urban spaces in Singapore, has been relatively successful. It is not without challenges but it is not something that cannot be overcome with time and community collaboration. The results obtained from this study were used to contribute sustainable suggestions to Singapore’s placemaking scene, as well as recommend possible areas for future research.
