Charmingly Changi Ideas Competition
Explore the winning ideas to enhance the rustic charm of Changi Point
Members of the public were invited to propose creative ideas to build on the unique identity of Changi Point and enhance the district as a heritage and recreational node along the Greater Rustic Coast for the competition held from April to June 2021.
Organised by the Singapore Land Authority and Urban Redevelopment Authority, we received a total of 134 submissions and selected 12 entries as winners in various categories as well as awarded an additional commendation award.
Participants were invited to submit proposals under the following topics:
Topic 1: Concept Master Plan for Changi Point
Participants were challenged to formulate a broad concept master plan to guide the enhancement of Changi Point. A balance should be achieved between retaining the quiet, laid-back, and rustic character of the local area and enabling enhancements that will increase the attractiveness and appreciation of Changi Point. This concept master plan should provide a clear and coherent structure for the enhancement of Changi Point as an attractive recreational and heritage node with its own distinct identity.
