[ONE STORY 23] 5 Questions for a Conservation Planner. Ever wondered what went into conserving a shophouse in Chinatown or the work that went into it? The Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) conservation master plan in 1989 identified historic areas for conservation, one of which was Chinatown.
Today, the URA has conserved more than 7,000 buildings in more than 100 areas, including Chinatown, which is one of our four historic districts.
Tune in to hear from a conservation planner at the URA, who will speak about the importance of conserving our built heritage, the challenges in balancing modern needs, and solutions to rejuvenate our districts!

About One Story
“Squat for Tradition, Sit for Modernity” is a short story by Chia Joo Ming that was originally written in Chinese. This book features the Chinese story, as well as translations of the story in English, Malay, and Tamil. This book is part of the One Story project, an effort by the National Library Board to make Singapore short stories – originally written in Chinese, Malay or Tamil – available in all of Singapore’s four official languages. The project aims to bring these stories to readers beyond the language communities that they were originally written for.
