Day 3. 1 Keynote: Creating healthy places – the Singapore experience


The global pandemic has put health infrastructure under the spotlight in every country in the world. This doesn’t just mean hospitals, but also community based health which is crucial to caring for our ageing population, opportunities for integrating wellbeing into our parks and green spaces. Ed Baker will present Singapore as a case study looking at the interrelationship between urban planning, landscape design, the countries and strategic health initiatives and in the context of the Covid-19 response.
This session will also include a recent case study – the Broadway Malyan planned Health City Novena. Commissioned by Singapore’s National Healthcare Group and the Singapore Health Ministry, it is an integrated “health city”, a 17-hectare mixed use built around and existing hospital in central Singapore incorporating healthcare, medical education and community uses, as well as the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID) which has become the centre of Singapore’s Covid-19 response.
