Abstract: The population in Singapore has been increasing at a rapid rate due to government policies of increasing the influx of foreign talent from abroad and encouraging an increase in birth rates in hopes of boosting economic growth and to curb the ageing population (EconomyWatch Content, 2010). “…By 2030, the number of seniors above 65 in Singapore will increase approximately three-fold to almost one million. This means one in five Singaporeans will be above the age of 65.” (Yong, 2011) In recent population density comparisons, Singapore hit a high of 7,257 people per square km, this in comparison to Hong Kong which has a population density of 6,476 people per square km. Although there are many factors to consider, there is no doubt that the impact of space for the population to not just reside in but to roam about is being impacted greatly. Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong has also voiced his concern saying that the government “faces some serious challenges ahead such as addressing the constraints of space and the limits of an ageing and shrinking citizen population” (Musfirah, 2013). This project is about the study of human traffic movements in specific public spaces in Singapore over time. The purpose of this is to address the issue of the use of ever-changing space in Singapore, how the population deals with this space as the growth of population continues to increase. The project tackles this information and with respects to how organizing a large population of people would be like in everyday spaces when visually expressed.
