Re-imagining the Rail Corridor

  9 - 25 Mar | 10am - 10pm | UCC Foyer | Free Admission  
Re-imagining the Rail Corridor Exhibition is envisioned as part of a series of events dedicated to increasing public awareness and deepening understanding of the tract of KTM railway land recently returned to Singapore. It intends to explore, encourage and develop creative ideas for incorporation into the future of the Rail Corridor.
The exhibition revolves around six key themes: Ecology, Heritage, Recreation, Transport, Education and Community Gardening. Through these themes, it hopes to shape our understanding of and give insight to a rare piece of our cultural and natural heritage amidst our urban landscape, and to spark interest in the protection and preservation of this heritage as an extension of our national identity.

The exhibition will also showcase some early ideas from architecture and landscape students as well as design professionals for what the future of the Rail Corridor could become, and hopefully inspire more Singaporeans to recognise their stake in their surroundings and to build-up engagement with the public in jointly designing the spaces around us.

In partnership with CFA Speakers’ Series
Support By Friends of the Rail Corridor, Nature Society Of Singapore, re:ACT and URA.
