World Architect Festival Winner,the Kallang River Bishan Park

Mr.Herbert Dreiseitl from Atelier Dreiseitl started to work on the plans for the Kallang River Bishan Park in Singapore back in 2009. Bishan Park is one of Singapore’s most popular parks in the heartlands of Singapore with more than 3 milllion visitors to the park annually.

As part of a much-needed park upgrade and plans to improve the capacity of the Kallang River along the edge of the park, works were carried out simultaneously to transform the utilitarian concrete channel into a naturalised river, creating new spaces for the community to enjoy.

 

This project is part of the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Programme of the Public Utilities board in Singapore, which manages the country’s water supply and drainage – a long-term initiative to transform the country’s water bodies beyond their functions of drainage and water supply, into vibrant, new spaces for community bonding and recreation.

The Kallang River Bishan Park won this years WAF-Landscape Design Contest 2012. The park was chosen from 9 other candidates.
