Singapore: Waterfront Redevelopment

Short at the front, Party at the back

Could describe a mullet hairstyle, OR the waterfront redevelopment and mixed use pattern seen in many places.  It was an obvious built form in Singapore, with low scale heritage and extreme new height behind it.  The shorter form protecting character and contributing to waterfront pedestrian spaces.  In newer development (Robertson Quay) it was also obvious the modern or fake replication of old forms was done to keep this pattern.
