NUS’s Hwang Yun Hye on landscape design
Hwang's pilot project serves as an ecological stepping stone between Kent Ridge Forest and Clementi Woodland Park, she adds. It has become a natural refuge for animals such as a pair of spotted owls, which are critically endangered in Singapore. The garden has also become an outdoor laboratory for students and researchers and allows policymakers to observe the feasibility of implementing similar projects, she says.
The project won the International Federation of Landscape Architects’ Nature Conservation award 2017.
