Traditional or vernacular built environment holds many value in cultural and environmental aspect. They are rich with wisdom of the past and stayed true to the context despite evolving with new influences. Yet it is hard to maintain and as result, many were left to perished and forgotten…
The ‘new’ built environment was majorly influenced by imported style & trend and advancement of technology. Local values are sometimes disregarded. Not only does this wavers the local identity, it also affect the environment and our culture.
The Old & New:
Instead of treating our traditional vernacular built environment as living museum or preserve them only as mere information, we should consider to bridge the OLD&NEW wisdom so that we can improve our built environment toward sustainability and strengthening our identity. Thus KALAM brings you:
