Remaking Metropolis
Cities—particularly in Asia—seem to expand, morph, multiply and reinvent themselves. In this issue, FuturArc spotlights the City: the team looked at projects that, by scale or strategic importance, are transforming the way we see a city; re-crafting its experience and rebranding its identity. And nothing says 'remake' better than Singapore's new downtown. A large swath of land surrounding Marina Bay will be home to several new developments including the much-publicised Integrated resort, F1 circuit and Marina Barrage. Gardens by the Bay—by far the most original of these—is close to 100 hectares of prime real estate set aside for gardens, a Central Park-like oasis that aims to be the must-see repository of horticulture in the Tropics.
 
The team also found projects with considerable bite in other cities—Sydney, Macau, Hanoi, Johor and Shanghai—each with a unique spin on our theme 'Remaking Metropolis'.
 
In keeping with the theme, the FuturArc team has tinkered with the Journal's format, remaking its structure, just a little. Each edition now includes a Main Feature, the FuturArc Showcase, the FuturArc Interview, Feature Projects and a Commentary section.
