    • 2. Real Landscape
      • Has a physical presence, is concrete and material
      • Created by humans or as part of nature
      • Is something you can experience with your senses
      • Example: Singapore
    • 3. Imaginary Landscape
      • Exist in the mind
      • Part of social imagination
      • Created in myths, legends, fiction, represented in paintings
      • Example: The little red dot
    • 4. Landscape of Spectacle
      • Meant to impress by the sheer size or distinction
      • The visual is more important than actual substantive activity
      • Example: The Singapore Flyer
    • 5. Ordinary Landscape
      • A landscape that is familiar
      • Encountered daily
      • Meaningful to ordinary people who live there
      • Associated with people
      • Not just gazed at, but lived in
      • Example: Void deck “mama” shop
    • 6. Dominant Landscape
      • Landscape of the majority culture
      • Inclusion versus Exclusion
      • Example: HDB Estates
      • 86% (majority) of Singaporeans live in HDB flats
    • 7. Alternative Landscape
      • Landscape of exclusion created by the minority culture and marginalized groups
      • Example: Ang Siang Hill
    • 8. The power of landscape
      • Landscape can legitimize
      • Naturalize values and ideologies that structure way of life
      • Example: Singapore’s Port
    • 9. Landscapes of Power
      • Produced by dominant groups
      • Reveal or reflect the power of those who constructed, defined and maintained the landscape
      • Example: Supreme Court
    • 10. Landscape of Resistance
      • Landscape that expresses those who resist power or dominant ideology
      • Example: Potong Pasir
    • 11. Contested Landscape
      • Landscape that is contested between dominant and minority, alternative groups
      • Example: Chinatown
    • 12. Landscape as a lens to study society
      • Landscapes can be read for clues which indicate prevailing ideas, values, social meanings and ideologies
      • Countries’ global interactions will also be reflected in the landscape through responses on local scale
      • Example: Marina Barrage
      • Environmental Possibilism, Water Resource Politics, Water security and vulnerability response
