In a city just over 700 square kilometres, Singapore's biggest problem is being small. Thus, state planning dominates the cityscape, focusing on economic survival and making it one of the world's most business-friendly. Yet, Singapore struggles to keep its people and address their diverse needs for space. But instead of the state, the solution may lie in its people. Our online journalism project looks at the everyday life of ordinary people and how they create space in this over-determined city. Just like how the state reclaims land for its plans, so have its people.
