The Resilience of Tradition:

 Malay Allusions in Contemporary Architecture

 -

 Shireen Jahn Kassim, Norwina Mohd Nawawi & Noor Hanita Abdul Majid

It is a fairly common feature in current tropical architecture to abandon traditional climate appropriate forms for structures more suitable for colder climes: wood and ventilation are replaced by concrete and air conditioning. In this book  three academics from the fields of sustainable design, vernacular architecture, bioclimactic technology and health planning examine what has been happening in Malaysia. Having established the positive effects of traditional Malay architecture, they survey current attempts in the country and elsewhere in Southeast Asia to incorporate traditional principles into modern buildings. With many colour photographs and some line drawings. 273 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page New Softback. First Edition
