Product Description

In the Government’s latest attempt to ‘revitalize’ the Civic and Cultural District, redevelopment plans have called for, among other interventions, the National Library’s demolition to make way for a traffic tunnel, causing drastic changes on and around the Bras Basah park.

Memories and the National Library chronicles in a lucid and highly accessible manner, the complex development of events surrounding the controversy. At its core, proceedings from the public forum including the floor discussion provide a deep sense of the many stakes involved. Excerpts of the debate in other media present a valuable opportunity  for a further reading of these and larger issues at hand.
