in architecture should be interested in how the buildings are made, the designs, history and philosophy. Architecture is basically the art or practice of designing and construction of buildings.

Architects design buildings, open areas, communities, and other artificial constructions and environments, usually with some regard to aesthetic effect. Architecture often includes design or selection of furnishings and decorations, supervision of construction work, and the examination, restoration, or remodelling of existing buildings.

Pathway to become an Architect in Malaysia

To become an architect in Malaysia, students after SPM will go into a 1 year Foundation course. After that, they need to go for a degree in architecture that is accredited by the Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia for (LAM) Part 1. After the degree, students will continue on to a 2-year masters which is accredited by the Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia (LAM) Part 2. Finally, after working for 2 years, students will submit their portfolio and sit for the Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia Part 3.

To become a professional architect, students must undergo Part 3, where they need to practise architecture for two years and compile a portfolio of their work and fulfil all the project requirements set by Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia (LAM).

They will then have to go for interviews and pass the final exam set by Pertubuhan Arkitek Malaysia (PAM). Upon passing, they can then use the title “Ar” and be called professional architects.

The station, another one of Arthur Benison Hubback’s magnificent works of architecture. Completed in 1910, to replace an older station on the same site, the station was Kuala Lumpur’s railway hub in the city for the Federated Malay States Railways and Keretapi Tanah Melayu. The station is notable for its architecture, adopting a mixture of Eastern and Western designs. The “Neo-Moorish/Mughal/Indo-Saracenic/Neo-Saracenic” style was not uncommon at the time.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA)

Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA)

 

The concept of KLIA’s terminal building area was prepared by the late Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa. The terminal building area was designed using the concept of Airport in the forest, forest in the airport, in which it is surrounded by green space. In the international departures hall, a series of Islamic-style domes—hyperbolic paraboloids—are held aloft by strange, chubby columns that taper toward the top. Even the long transfer hallways, with wooden ceilings pierced with tiny spotlights, possess unmistakable character.

 

 

 

Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan, Perak

Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan, Perak

 

The tower was built in the year 1885 by Leong Choon Chong, a Chinese contractor and was originally used as a water tank to store portable water during dry season for the people living nearby. It is also used as a time keeper of the town as there is a huge clock on top of the tower. The clock was made by J.W. Benson of Ludgatehill London and the cost of building it was contributed by the local people. The building itself is made of bricks and wood. The pagoda style structure has been greatly influenced by Chinese architecture.

 

 

 

Kek Lok Si Temple, Penang

Kek Lok Si Temple, Penang

 

The construction of the Kek Lok Si temple began in 1893 and was inspired by the chief monk of the Goddess of Mercy Temple at Pitt Street. In 1930, the seven storey main pagoda of the temple or the Pagoda of 10,000 Buddhas, was completed. This pagoda combines a Chinese octagonal base with a middle tier of Thai design, and a Burmese crown; reflecting the temple’s embrace of both Mahayana and Theravada Buddhism. In 2002, a 30.2-metre (99 ft) bronze statue of the Kuan Yin was completed and opened to public. Mahayana Buddhism and traditional Chinese rituals blend into a harmonious whole, both in the temple architecture and artwork as well as in the daily activities of worshippers.

The floors of the church are paved with granite blocks originally used as ballast for merchant ships.

 

 

Heriot-Watt University Malaysia is a green campus

Heriot-Watt University Malaysia is a green campus

Heriot-Watt University Malaysia at Putrajaya: Malaysia’s first purpose-built green campus. Arfizan Arshad is the project architect from Hijjas Kasturi Associates and the green building index (GBI) consultant is PCR Sdn Bhd’s David Wang. The most outstanding green feature of this new campus is its unique and arching green roof that curves from the ground to the third floor. The 300 metre long, 30 metre wide green roof, the first of its kind in Malaysia, requires the use of particular soil at various parts, waterproofing, irrigation system and suitable grass. The project site predominantly faces north and south, making it ideal to optimise the passive design aspect, the first approach to take in designing for sustainability. The campus will include a built-in control system driven by overall thermal transfer value which essentially measures the energy consumption of air conditioners. Heriot-Watt University Malaysia’s lighting will be ‘powered’ by the maximum use of natural daylight through passive design such as natural glass glazing with no blinds installed, while T5 lights will power the darker areas.
