Chief Urban Designer, Urban Redevelopment Authority - URA (Singapore)


As Chief Urban Designer at the Urban Redevelopment Authority, I oversee all urban design work for the Central Area of Singapore which comprises areas like Marina Bay, Singapore River and Orchard Road. My work outside of The Central Area includes areas like Jurong Lake District, the Western Business District and Punggol Digital District. I believe that while urban design is to give structure and form to the city, equally important is its role in shaping the public realm between buildings to become attractive public spaces to support civic and community life. Urban design is about designing the city in context with its history, culture, climatic and environmental conditions and socio-economic aspirations. I am a strong proponent of architecture and urban design excellence because I believe well-designed buildings and public spaces of today will be the built heritage of tomorrow and the built legacy for future generations. My work also involves working in collaboration with the private sector building owners and professionals to deliver good designs through peer reviews for strategic projects.
