Stepping into the future

A new $2.5 million facility featuring a futuristic gallery as well as a sensory garden offers a glimpse of the vision for Singapore’s built-up environment.

The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) yesterday opened the exhibits at its Braddell Road academy.

Key themes on show include a ‘green’ sustainability drive and making buildings and other facilities accessible to the aged and disabled.

The facility also showcases the development of the island’s built-up environment and new technologies.

The garden has information panels set in Braille for the visually impaired, and raised flower beds in the herbs section so that those in wheelchairs can easily touch, smell or taste the herbs.

Ms Grace Fu, the Senior Minister of State for National Development and Education, attended the official opening yesterday.
