Конкурсантам предлагается разработать концепции редевелопмента территории военной авиабазы Пайя Лебар в Сингапуре. В будущем она, возможно, будет трансформирована в современный устойчивый жилой район. Проекты должны демонстрировать уважение к истории этого места и богатому авиационному наследию.
“Runway for Your Imagination” – the ideas competition for the redevelopment of Paya Lebar Airbase is organised by the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore (URA), in partnership with the Singapore Institute of Architects and Singapore Institute of Planners.
The site was Singapore’s second international airport from 1955 to 1981 and is currently used as a military airbase. The place holds many rich memories as a nation, being the birthplace of Singapore’s national carrier, Singapore Airlines, in 1971. It also hosted the historic supersonic Concorde between 1977 to 1980 when it was jointly operated by Singapore Airlines and British Airways. Many of the former airport buildings such as the passenger terminal buildings, control tower and aircraft hangars remain today, but have been re-purposed for other uses. The most distinctive feature of the airbase is the 3.8 km long runway. With the relocation of Paya Lebar Airbase from the 2030s onwards, the airbase and its surrounding industrial areas can progressively be transformed into a highly liveable and sustainable new town, built on its unique heritage as a former airport and airbase.
The possibilities are immense, and we would like to hear how you envision this place to be in future, including ideas on how some of the former airport buildings and parts of the runway can be repurposed to celebrate the area’s rich aviation heritage. A selection of the ideas received will be exhibited for public viewing, and useful ideas and concepts from the competition will be distilled into design principles and used for the development of a planning brief for the future master planning of the area.
