Designing a Loveable Singapore: What and Why?
What is the Loveable Singapore Project about? And why are we doing this? Watch the video to find out more!
The Loveable Singapore Project is an initiative led by the DesignSingapore Council to find out what we love about Singapore and what would make us love Singapore more. Through this study, we hope to define what loveabilty means in Singapore and identify gaps and opportunities for interventions by private and public agencies, as well as communities and individuals.

The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high speed rail (HSR) project was supposed to be a game changer. The 350-kilometer line would have slashed travel time from four hours plus by road to just 90 minutes. But after two delays for Malaysia to reconsider – and try to renegotiate terms – Malaysia opted to scrap the deal and compensate Singapore. The basics of using SG Project.

To Our City, with Love (Part 1 of 2)
On the agenda: How does loveability shape our experience of cities, and can loveability help us meet our needs and aspirations as a nation?
How this project came about
The vision of Singapore's Design 2025 Masterplan is for Singapore to be a thriving innovation-driven economy and Loveable City by the year 2025. We are poised to achieve the former, with Singapore's well-developed infrastructure, stable government and highly-educated citizenry. However, our success as a nation must also encompass a Singapore where the human spirit flourishes, where we have a deeper sense of emotional attachment and pride to our nation beyond just mere utility or material benefit. This, in a nutshell, is a loveable Singapore. However, the meaning of ‘loveable’ and what it means to have realised it, remains to be explored.
To unpack this, we have formulated two key research questions: What do we love about Singapore and what will make us love the country more? Essentially, how can we meet our needs and aspirations, and transform our nation into a more flourishing, innovative, and resilient home for all?
This is the journey we have taken over the year to uncover loveability in Singapore and we welcome you to join us!
