Generations of Singaporeans used to live in single-storey wooden structures with attap or zinc roofs in villages known as kampongs, surrounded by nature. Urban redevelopment after post-independence Singapore had transformed most of the landscape from villages to high-rise blocks of flats. Join Senior Librarian Ang Seow Leng as she highlights resources on kampongs and people’s memories of kampongs.
