Department of Geography, NTNU
Because the change of Singapore's settlement landscapes is going along with modernization and urbanization, it's difficult to find out the national idea within it. This study mainly looks into the national meaning within the succession of settlement landscapes by probing into the new and old Chinese settlement landscapes. To demonstrate this, this study will attempt to probe into new and old Chinese settlement landscapes first , then to find out the landscape narratives within them. The result shows that the change of settlement landscapes not only solved problems of housing shortage. Since the national idea was poured into, there were three characteristics within the landscape change. They were: I. Destroy Landscapes. The government destroyed old settlement landscapes which were unfavorable tothe national development by constructing public housings extensively; 2. Construct Landscapes. HDB gathered lands and fortunes to build public housings which have no colors of ethnicities, urban and rural and economical difference; 3. Conserve and transform landscapes. A few landscapes were conserved and infused into national idea to be associated with the past of nation by the government.
