Description

‘Future Cities: Research in Action’ by the Future Cities Laboratory (FCL) of the
Singapore-ETH Centre presented the work of more than 120 FCL researchers over
the past four years, in providing practical solutions to make cities more sustainable.

Spanning the disciplines of architecture, engineering, natural and social sciences,
the exhibition featured innovations to address urban challenges at scales ranging
from buildings and how they are constructed, to neighbourhoods and districts, to
cities and their hinterlands.

Featured innovations included sustainable construction materials, low-energy airconditioning systems, robotic fabrication techniques, the design of vibrant urban neighbourhoods, flood mitigation, and slum rehabilitation, among others. These diverse innovations are further integrated through sophisticated digital models and design support tools.
