Singapore has achieved international prominence thanks to the Formula 1 grand prix, blockbuster movies and high-profile summits between world leaders. While these events help to put this small country on the map, even more exciting things happen far away from the spotlight, at the very core of the city’s infrastructure.
The National Geographics magazine has recently dedicated an entire issue to Singapore and its efforts to bring smart city concepts to reality. Data-driven urban planning, vertical farming, sustainable energy housing, water de-salting and the vibrant startup scene are only some of the areas covered in the research.
