Abstract: This thesis proposes a reorientation of the masterplanning strategies of new towns in Singapore; the site situated in Pasir Ris. Masterplanning policies adopted by the URA have been observed as regimented, producing cookie-cutter towns based on zones, where distinct boundaries between programmes are created because of the importance of vehicular roads, resulting in a 'one-plot, one function' scheme. My thesis aims to break down these boundaries, introducing multiple programmes within a spalce and adopting a strategy of fluid layering through the concept of weaving. This allows the integration of seemingly incompatible activities such as commercial,business, residential and green spaces within a site and demonstrating the flexibility of masterplanning. The proposal focuses on the strategy of using the market place as connectors which are originally destination-bound according to URA standards. This promotes the idea of a pedestrian friendly town, where places can be easily reached by walking or cycling through ramps, pathways, escalators or travelators. Thus, reducing the need for roads, The proposed masterplan also responds to the existing site conditions of the bus interchange and MRT station as well as 2 narrow rivers, Downtown East, Pasir Ris beach and a quiet residential quarter. Architecture will be demonstrated through sections and typical plans of how the different programmes and typologies will come together.
