Abstract

The architectural heritage of a people or a nation is the essence of its technological prowess and aesthetic values, and it represents a living culture. The development and civilizing aspects of a nation must be based on the past heritage so that a continuous culture and balanced environment is assured from generations to generations. This book contains some of the works of KALAM (Pusat Kajian Alam Bina Dunia Melayu) or Center for the Study of Built Environment in the Malay World, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia which document the intellectual heritage of architecture from this region of the world. This book can be read by all levels of society and it encourages the reader to place the importance of the local architectural heritage in our strive to not only create a better built environment for all but also that acts as a bridge between the various cultures of Malaysia.
