Made in Singapore:

Hybrids for More with Less

Half fish, half lion, Singapore’s mascot, the Merlion epitomizes the concept of a hybrid, an entity produced by a combination of two or more distinct elements, usually with an heterosis outcome whereby the end product is more than the sum of its elements. Hybrid or mixed-use buildings are invented for land use optimization as well as capitalizing on the synergy of different functions to create symbiotic benefits. This lecture examines the different strategies that enable the hybrids made in Singapore and discusses the issues and challenges in each context.
