Among the newly independent nations in Southeast Asia in the post-war era, Singapore's housing development experience has been unique. Since the 1960s, its land space had been radically transformed into a modern cityscape comparable to any advanced Western city. A Roof Over Every Head analyses the evolution of public housing design and services from the 1960s to the 1990s, a period that saw the transition from quantitative to qualitative emphasis. This book is a detailed study of the history of the growth of public housing and the recent trends in public policy in Singapore where private has been predominant over the public. It sees official response to the issue as it has been in the recent years and also tries to see how the future may unfold in Singapore's quest for better housing for greatest numbers.
