A : The differences in Block Design of Public Housing in a mature town (Punggol), middle-age town (Yishun) and new town (Punggol)
(B) EXPLAIN WHY IS IT FOCUSED
A : It is only focused on a certain area in 3 different towns and only focuses on the block design. It does not focus to the extent of the planning of the estate and town.
(C) EXPLAIN WHY IS IT SIGNIFICANT
A : It allows the public to see how much the design of the block have changed over the years in various towns.
(D) EXPLAIN WHY IS IT FEASIBLE
A : Most of the residential buildings still stand today. Most types of public housing are easily accessible. We may also visit the National Library at Bugis Street to find more information about public housing to aid up in the data collection in our project.
(E) EXPLAIN WHY IS IT MANAGEABLE
A : The public housing does not require much monetary. This does not require too much time from the student as the data collection would only be a small portion of the area of 3 towns.
(F) EXPLAIN WHY IS IT ACCESSIBLE
A : As it name goes, it is public. Meaning it is able to be accessed by all members of public.
(G) STATE AT LEAST 3 SOURCES OF INFORMATION THAT YOU WILL BE DRAWING YOUR RESEARCH UPON (3 web links) AND WHY YOU CHOOSE THEM.
- http://www.morrischia.com/david/portfolio/boozy/research/hdb_20flats_20analysis.htmlElderly *(This page would be able to aid us by defining what is block design and what is a block design made up of. This would be very essential to our data collection.)
- http://s-pores.com/2009/07/hdbblock/ (This page would tell us the various types of block designs and help us differentiate them.)
- http://www.hdb.gov.sg/fi10/fi10321p.nsf/w/BuyingNewFlatDesignFeatures?OpenDocument (This page would tell us the current types of block design HDB offers.)
(H) STATE YOUR TYPE OF DATA COLLECTION AS IN TIP 5
A : We would like to see the difference in physical appearance, number of floors, number of units per floor.
