KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 5 (Bernama) -- Seven iconic buildings designed by local architects and landscape designers will be introduced to the public through the 'Singgah KL' programme tomorrow.
The one-day guided tour, held in conjunction with the Kuala Lumpur Design Month 2019, is an initiative by the Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM) in collaboration with Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to showcase the city's architecture.
PAM President, Lilian Tay said the idea of the annual open house event was derived from the Open House London started in 1992, to appreciate and celebrate local architects' designs.
"Seven buildings, namely the PAM Centre; Rumah Tangsi; Pusat Kreatif Kanak-Kanak Tuanku Bainun, Asian Institute of Chartered Bankers (AICB), the International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL), Hotel Stripes, and Pusat Genius Kurnia will participate in the inaugural event.
"Participants may opt for a guided tour which will be lead by our architect from PAM to introduce and bring them to visit those buildings, which include PAM's award-winning buildings," she told reporters during the one-day Housing+Urbanity Symposium (H+U2019) here today.
The symposium was launched by Kuala Lumpur Mayor, Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan.
Explaining further, Tay said through the Kuala Lumpur Design Month, the participants could visit several non-public buildings which are not often open to the public.....
