Nanyang Technical University Master Plan

This Master Plan provides guidance for the planning and growth of Nanyang Technological University’s Yunnan Garden Campus, covering a 200ha site in Singapore.

The Master Plan analyses physical links to the campus’ adjacent properties, social connections between the University and the wider Singapore community
and integrates the campus’ natural environment with the local tropical ecosystem.

At the heart of the Master Plan, revitalised natural systems provide an underlying structure to the transformed physical environment, leading to the designation of twelve precincts within the broader campus, defined by existing topographic elements and new water and landscape corridors. To complement the open parkland character of the campus, a vibrant new campus centre establishes the University’s identity through a physical structure enabling social interaction, learning and living.

The Master Plan establishes a number of key architectural and planning controls, addressing built form, landscaping, lighting, vehicular and pedestrian transport and infrastructure requirements, with sustainability initiatives predominant in all proposed development. The Master Plan aims to be a key element supporting the educational goals of NTU for the fifteen year duration of the Master Plan, and into the future beyond.
