Singapore Architecture
Singaporean architecture can broadly be segregated in two parts - Colonial and Modern. Conforming with Singaporean feature of being a multi-faceted city, the colonial Singapore buildings present unique blend of the European and the indigenous style. The modern buildings can compete with their counterparts in any part of the world.

Colonial
Singapore under the British came under colonial influence and the effects are obvious in the structures and places like Lua Pa Sat Festival Market, Emerald Hill Historical District, various Chinese buildings in Melaka, the Cavanagh Bridge, various Chinatown shop houses, as well as temples, mosques, shrines and churches built during the colonial era.

Most buildings built in this era are classical in style but demonstrate multiple influences in their design, including the Roman Classical, ornate Victorian Renaissance, and even Gothic. Traditional Singaporean style had mainly Chinese and Malay touch.

Modern
Current Parliament House is a fine example of modern architecture of Singaporean style. Other prominent examples of modern architecture are the skyscrapers of Singapore and state-of-the-art MRT stations. However, since the Singapore Government has place limit on the height of the building for safe plane landings, the skyscrapers don't challenge the skylines of the likes of Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur. Yet, in design and style, they are now less than their counterparts.
