Future urban-architectural typologies for sustainable multidimensional densification of Pansir Panjang Terminal Singapore
This year, the ISU BA Urban Design Studio focuses on the city state of Singapore under the motto “ SG / PPT Super Densities „. In the daily negotiation of limited resources – especially space – the city of Singapore is constantly changing. The port facilities along the entire coast will be moved all the way west in the coming years. Freeing up a gigantic potential of city along the Singapore Strait – one of the busiest waterways in the world.
With SG / PPT Super DensitiesWe are looking for new strategies and visions for the development of highly condensed urban spaces: in the studio we are therefore looking for exemplary solutions for the combination of living, working, production and recreation in rapidly growing cities. Together, we want to explore the palette of possible multifunctional and dimensional types, new urban building blocks, and urban-architectural (mega) structures.
Our project area is the artificial islands of the PPT Pasir Panjang Terminal – today a fully automated container terminal with 15 km of quay and 132 container cranes – which will be completely abandoned in the coming years. As the hub of a global network of goods flows with 33 million handled standard containers (TEUs) per year, the PPT, which links 600 ports in 123 nations, is also an example of Global City Singapore.
Based on the large-scale overall view of the project area, different development parameters are holistically considered: resource flows, synergies of urban functions such as living, working, transport and supply. We zoom in to scale the city in complex architecture while helping to preserve the island’s fragile ecosystem.
The cooperation with the Institute of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Technology, whose research in the field of urban factories is world-leading, as well as the Institute of Building Technology and Solar Energy of the TU Braunschweig allows us a deeper understanding of the consequences of the fundamental paradigm shift of traditional production conditions in times of digitization, scarcity of resources and personalization of the products. Last but not least, this will enable the production of industrial goods to be relocated from the outskirts of the city to the neighborhood and local production processes to be established – an approach to more sustainable development in fast-growing urban regions!
Singapore shows us what it means to radically rethink and design the city and architecture.

SG/PPT Super Densities
Future urban-architectural typologies for sustainable multidimensional densification of Pansir Panjang Terminal Singapore
The ISU BA Urban Design Studio SG/PPT Super Densities in Singapore moves across the scales! In the daily negotiation of the limited resources available, the urban region of Singapore is constantly changing. The port facilities that extend along the entire coast will all be shifted to the west in the coming years. A gigantic potential of urban areas along the Singapore Strait – one of the busiest waterways in the world – opens up, only 10 minutes from the city centre of Singapore.
Our project area is the artificial island of the PPT Pasir Panjang Terminal – today a fully automated container terminal with a quay length of 15 km and 132 container cranes – which will be completely abandoned in the coming years. As the hub of a global network of goods flows with 33 million standard containers (TEU) handled annually, the PPT, with its links to 600 ports in 123 nations, is also an example of the Global City of Singapore.
SG/PPT Super Densities focuses new strategies and visions for the development of high-density new spaces for living, working, production and recreation in rapidly growing cities by designing a range of multifunctional and multidimensional types of new urban building blocks and urban architectural (mega) structures. Starting from the scenaric-conceptual, large-scale overall view of the project area in the south of the island, different development parameters will be unveiled: resource flows between and synergies of urban functions (living, labour, traffic, utilities, etc.). In a second step, we will zoom in to develop ideas and solutions for responses in architecture and the urban scale, at the same time preserving the island’s fragile ecosystem.
The cooperation with the Institute of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Technology allows us to gain a deeper understanding of the consequences of the fundamental paradigm shift of traditional production conditions in times of digitalisation, scarcity of resources and personalisation of products. Does this allow us to relocate the production of industrial goods back from the outskirts to the neighbourhood and establish local production processes?
The answer can only be to radically rethink and redesign the city and its architecture.

Welcome to Singapore!
