ROCHOR+ is a multidisciplinary research platform that brings together researchers with expertise in the fields of Urban Planning, Transport Planning, Historical Analysis, Building Technology and Simulation based research.
The title ROCHOR+ stresses that the research area is not a synonym of an existing defined neighbourhood in Singapore but an expansion of the Rochor planning area, encompassing the neighbourhood of Jalan Besar, Little India, Bras Basah and Kampong Glam. This approx. 2.2km by 1.6km large part of Singapore is one of the last greater intact districts that can be classified to have developed organically, in response to local forces rather than planning visions in Singapore.
By virtue the district displays one of the largest manifolds with respect to urban morphology, functional uses and social heterogeneity that can be found in Singapore and therefore is an ideal case for a variety of studies.
Together the multidisciplinary team displays how the research teams with different focal points have analysed, interpreted and emphasised selected crucial elements of city life in different scales.
