Lets start a discourse on Chinatown.

Many argued the apparent facadism on Chinatown shophouses, while most were disgusted about the theme park effect by the STB. The business on authenticity were questionable as STB try to bring back, or rather evoke, memories that can be experiential to the younger generations.

Let think about whether is it possible to bring EVERYTHING back into the modern Chinatown.

Given a choice, will you prefer to live in the Chinatown shophouses now??

an adaptive re-use approach is acceptable in heritage conservation. this is to ensure economic vitality could make the old place alive.
