Abstract: The dissertation attempts to serve as a projection of the future and to evaluate the potential impacts of Green Transport, with the Electric Car in particular, on our built environment and changes to the lifestyle of people. The invention of the automobile a century ago has greatly affected the way people live and has fundamentally changed the dynamics of the street, reshaped the layout of cities and landscape and this too applies to the eventual adoption of Electric Cars in the near future. The dissertation will focus on the Architectural Implications of Electric Cars and the benefits of adopting Electric Cars over the Gas- Consuming Counterparts with regards to environmental concerns and how this relates to 3 the re-thinking of the Pedestrian-Car and Car-Public Spaces Relationship in Singapore, within the context of an urban setting. Singapore was selected as the context for this research due to its compact urban environment with on-going researches in developing new energy technologies, making the small island state a viable choice for this research.
