STUDENT PROJECTS

Resilient Urban Systems

 

  • Analysing the different subsystems (social, ecological, technological) of East Coast and identifying the type of resilience with focus on (resilience of what, to what, for whom, where, and why)

  • Assessing a set of important ecosystem services provided by natural infrastructure

  • Interpreting results to propose future recommendations to enhance resilience

In the Resilient Urban Systems course (ES3202, Asian School of the Environment), students work in a group to assess the resilience of Singapore’s East Coast neighbourhood. The project involves:

In 2020, students benefitted from the experience of urban systems experts at the

Centre for Liveable Cities. Students formed three groups with a focus on:

1) Urban Cooling and Flood Risk Mitigation by street trees

2) Food Resilience in the face of Climate Change

3) Rain Gardens for Resilient Shophouses

URBAN COOLING AND FLOOD RISK MITIGATION

By Faith Wang, Han Rae Ann, Marcus Lim

Goal: To improve the distribution of ecosystem services provided by urban trees by informing planning in vulnerable areas with sparse distribution

How can we enhance resilience to climate change, such heat stress and flood risk, with natural infrastructure?

RAIN GARDENS FOR RESILIENT SHOPHOUSES

By Ben Chua, Tan Shi Ying

Goal: To analyse the resilience of shophouses and their neighbourhoods to pluvial flooding

How does introducing rain gardens within Marine Parade conservation site increase the resilience of shophouses to pluvial flooding?
