Co-generative Hubs for Urbanism

Published on 3 October 2019

The inaugural International Built Environment Week (IBEW) 2019, held at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Singapore from 3 – 6 September, was attended by more than 12,000 participants from over 50 countries and regions.

In the sharing session Be Connect, DPA Deputy COO Seah Chee Huang shared insights and key learning points from Our Tampines Hub (OTH), citing the development’s significant role in rejuvenating the Tampines heartland and fostering a sense of place in the mature estate.

In his presentation  "Co-generative Hubs for Urbanism", Chee Huang examined the role and productive potential of integrated communal architecture through its curated participatory design processes and post-occupancy outcomes through the lens of OTH. Acknowledging that there is greater propensity in the digital era for social connectivity to erode, architecture can instead leverage technology to not only champion sustainability but enhance physical and emotional connectivity in our communities.
