Singapore's Housing In The Future

As we are getting more and more develop in areas like technology, more ideas on housing and buildings and will be getting more and more exclusive but will be affordable for those low-income family. People may not like the changes in the future if we change their neighbourhoods like upgrade their buildings or reconstruct the buildings as it contains their childhood memories and they would like to preserve it and to show it to their younger generation of the places that they have stayed before or lived before and also to remember their childhood memories. So the only choice will be build more higher and more buildings. Some may have different views or thoughts, they might agree on the upgradings around them like changing outdoor facilities into indoor facilities or outdoor playground into indoor playground as it will be more safer or the types of housing . However, we must also not forget about the elderly and the children, we can create more better facilities that are suitable for them.
