hen the parts of a building are arranged according to a sense of their usages, when aesthetic space becomes living space and this is the kind of order called dynamic. The building throws off the fetters of the old, static order, etc., and achieves a new starting point. Through a suitability of material, stable equilibrium, free from constraints and stabilization to function, a building achieves much broader and better inner unity. It becomes more organic by abandoning the old conventions and formalisms of representation. Therefore, no wonder that architects tried to exploit the possibilities of functionalism to the full. Architecture is no more than a fixed and visible structure of the final organization of every movement, every purpose and use of the building. It is no small architectural achievement, absolutely free and open to every possible combination, and not just in a mechanical sense- “two doors in a long corridor” – but with the aim of achieving the finest and most ambitious organization and best possible construction.
To plan for the land uses within Singapore – the small island is to achieving sustainable urban development. In addition to uses like housing, commerce and industry, the plans have to cater for defense, waste disposal and water needs, as well facilities to support the purposes of the plans as a major air hub and as one of the largest container ports in the world.
Singapore Government – Urban Redevelopment Authority uses a Concept Plan, which is a strategic land use and transportation plan to map out the vision for further Singapore in the next 50 years. This concept ensures that future development is in the direction of environmental stewardship and social progress with balance economic growth. As Singapore becomes more built-up, parks and open spaces become increasingly important to provide relief as well as to promote community interaction. Today, Singapore is known as a Garden City. However, it would like to move towards becoming a City in a Garden. `Expand our space’ – Park connectors are introduced to link town centers; sports complexes and homes to all major parks and the coast around the island – Bishan Park and Bedok Reservoir Park. These serve as green corridors for cycling, jogging and the general enjoyment of nature for people to improving their life of quality by adding the design element – multifunction. The plan uses multifunction to support as a foundation of the Concept Plan. With a small land size and practically no natural resources, Singapore faces a challenging of transformation occurring.
Making Singapore becomes a top economically vibrant city that is also one of the most livable attractive cities in Asia. It is important to focus on designing with multifunction for improving the living quality. Facing the problems in Singapore: no natural resources, limited land space, increasing population, design and make the land plans is really a tough job.
Multifunction can sharpen the limited space become alive and fully utilization also enhances the facility of unused space. Singapore is a small island city-state with a cosmopolitan population. With a small land size and practically no natural resources, Singapore faces a challenging of transformation occurring nowadays, if the plans of land usages are the uncompleted it will be even harder. It is important to focus on designing with multifunction for improving the living quality. Hence, an increasing pressure on interior designers to provide functional facilities that maximize the use of interior space and permit it to serve more than one limited programmatic requirement. Applied multifunction into the daily life helps the design of the new buildings as well renewal the old buildings in some mature zones in Singapore. Again, as limited land in Singapore, multifunction can work with space to make the space more creative and more wisely in its usages.
