|Title:||OUTRAM SPORTS MASTERPLAN AND MIXED USE SPORTS CENTRE AT PEARL'S HILL||Authors:||LEE CHEE LI||Issue Date:||2003||Citation:||LEE CHEE LI (2003). OUTRAM SPORTS MASTERPLAN AND MIXED USE SPORTS CENTRE AT PEARL'S HILL. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Concept of a Sports Masterplan addresses the problems of current sports scenario in Singapore. Most sports venues mainly function as closeted institutions with mono-functions. There is no integration of sports facilities with other sports industries such as sports medicine, sports counseling and sports-oriented retail. The current sports complexes take the form of massive structure and become inward looking, thus discouraging light-hearted or casual participation. The design of existing sports complexes also limits and reduces the ways sports could be carried out. The area chosen to develop the Sports Masterplan is located in the central part of Singapore, Outnam. Due to its abundance of natural landscape (Pearl's Hill and the green belt, Duxton Plain Park), bustling commercial activities and medium to high live-in density, it presents as an appropriate area for extensive sports programmes. Rather than creating a single sports building, this project chooses to give each sporting facility a park-like character, which differs according to the features of the surrounding space and programme. The Sports Masterplan, which stretches from Singapore River to Yan Kit area, is taken as a continuous green spine, which one can find various sports activities and recreational spaces, linked up by linear parks, jogging and cycling tracks.||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/244689|
