About This Book

In The Resilience of Tradition: Malay Allusions in Contemporary Architecture, the authors attempt to address rhetorical questions like how and to what extent contemporary Malaysian architecture is influenced by Malay culture, values and forms, and in what way is the Malay Modern situated within the discourse of contemporary tropical architecture? Can the evolution of Malay architecture answer the challenge of developing climatically appropriate eco-architecture? Such questions are being asked in Malaysian universities, and in international conferences looking at modernism, postmodernism, regionalism, tropical architecture, green building and sustainability.
