Exhibition

If nationhood was the driving concept for 20th century geo-political identity, the “Compact City” is then the driver for the 21st century, in a time when urban populations are growing at an unprecedented rate and the future megapolis is unpredictable in complexity, scale and growth.

1000 Singapores: Eight Points of the Compact City examines the unique compact urban model of Singapore, a small yet progressive city-state in Southeast Asia. The exhibition makes visible both the conceptual and physical foundations of Singapore, and illustrates how its developmental model is pioneering urban planning and density strategies throughout Asia.

Using Singapore’s 50 years of independence as a backdrop, the exhibition will showcase not only efficient planning strategies, effective land intensification and growing economic ambition in physical form, but also its impact and relevance as an urban export model.

Diagrams, drawings and photographs illustrate the possibilities, challenges and problematics of the “Compact City” as it influences urban development in Asia, alongside models that bring out the differences in urban construct between the host city, Paris, and Singapore.

The exhibition is curated and designed by Khoo Peng Beng, Erik L’Heureux and Florian Schätz.
