Masterplanner listed as one to watch in Asia
2nd August 2018

One of Broadway Malyan’s Singapore team has been named on the Zico ASEAN 40 under 40 2018 list.

Monique Suksmaningsih, director of masterplanning, achieved the accolade, which is awarded to rising stars within their respective fields.

Monique has worked at Broadway Malyan for seven years. She has extensive international experience, having worked on projects throughout Europe, Middle East and Asia.

Originally from Jakarta, her experience includes mixed-use masterplanning projects ranging from small scale public realm works to large scale strategic planning.

Recent highlights include; the 17-hectare Health City Novena, creating a new, SMART-city based model for healthcare provision in Singapore; the award winning Sunway Iskandar masterplan in Malaysia; a 200-hectare mixed-use development in Clark, Philippines; and Fraser Garden City, a 3,000-hectare new town development based on a “garden village” concept, located in the south of the Malay Peninsula.

She has been involved in a number of international research projects including work on the spatial and social dynamics of streets and public spaces, and urban density and neighbourhood perception.

Monique also studied architecture, something that provides a useful foundation for her career as a masterplanner.

Monique said: “My passion lies in the creation of great places for people to live, work and thrive. My background in architecture helps with masterplanning and influences the typologies I select when planning for urban growth.

“I love working as part of a large team with a range of stakeholders to design a successful concept that meets the needs of both the client and the end-user community, that is fit for purpose for today and the future.”

All 40 under 40 honourees attended an exclusive conference event last Friday, to enjoy and participate in a range of panel discussions. Monique contributed to the “Modern Society” panel, speaking from an urban planning perspective. Other sessions during the day included one on disruptive technologies, and an examination into how technology can help to preserve art.

Monique added: “I was humbled to be part of such an amazing event, with participants from a range of backgrounds and industries, including security, transport, robotics, education and law. It was really inspirational to hear about some of the fantastic work taking place in the region and to reflect on current trends and potential challenges in the future.”

At the end of the year, a book will be published highlighting the 40 under 40 winners and a selection of articles on issues affecting the ASEAN region.
