Singapore's housing in the future

As we are moving on to future, more ideas on housing and buildings will be important in our life. As moving on to the future, technology will improve over the years. Years later, the houses will be more expensive. People might not like it if we change the neighbourhood as their memories were there. So the only choice would be to build higher buildings than now . Some might also have different thoughts, they may want to have a more modern facilities or housing type. But also we must consider about the elderly and children. We might create facilities which are suitable for elderly and also young children. With the reclaimed land we might have in the future, the government are able to build more house such as private house for the future generations.
