DLA students generate design ideas for Jurong Lake District

30 Jan 2019

A continuum from URA & DLA collaboration in Aug 2017, which involved a group of Diploma in Landscape Architecture (DLA) students as volunteer guides for Jurong Lake District (JLD) public exhibition. 34 Year 3 students from the DLA presented their Master Landscape Proposals (MLP) to Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) team and Director. The MLP is also their Final-Year-Project.

The DLA students worked on five unique proposals to share their ideas for a public thoroughfare network and landscape design framework, connecting new and existing developments and community spaces within the Jurong Gateway Precinct in JLD. During the critique sessions held at the URA Centre, the URA planners shared their vast knowledge with the students to enhance their knowledge and prepare them for the next phase of their Final-Year-Project.

Following the presentation, DLA students embarked on developing selected areas within the Masterplan to work on their design framework and landscape design features. The URA team also participated in the final design critique session from which the students gained feedback and comments to enhance their learning journey.
