Making Space For Dead: Issues In Urban Planning

Making Space For Dead: Issues In Urban Planning

  • Video
Death is present in many aspects our lives. Our race and religion affect how we mourn our loved ones, and our homes and favourite malls are built over old cemeteries. Today, it has become an intangible part of our culture.
In this first video in a series of four, we take a look at the history of grave exhumation in Singapore, and try to understand why it is almost necessary in order for us to maintain the delicate balance of diverse needs as a land-scarce city-state.
Stay tuned for the rest of the series as we learn about the different aspects of Culture, Cemeteries, and Urban Planning.
