dc.description.abstractThe success of conserving historical structures lies in a thorough understanding of its construction, materiality and physical context. This dissertation posits that an understanding of 19th and 20th century technology transfer from Britain to Singapore will help to inform a more sensitive conservation plan for the five historical bridges over Singapore River. This will involve the analysis of the issue at the global, macro and micro scale. Each scale requires different research methods such as using primary and secondary sources and conducting field surveys. The findings from this holistic approach will help form a conservation plan for the five bridges.en
