Conference Aims:
On a breadth dimension, we may question the ‘malay-ness’, the ‘now-ness’ of our interest and actions: acting locally , living personally in our cultures but sensitive to the diversity of others. What we feel in our everyday life-worlds: in relations to deep and less immediately tangible social , economic and ecological structures, in relation to human value, and to the value of caring for nature and each other ?

The conference is a union of the 2nd Malay Architecture as Lingua Franca and the 8th SENVAR. It is a meeting point for researchers, practitioners, professionals and community representatives. Our times call for interdisciplinary and holistic approaches. As the challenges to our ‘malay-ness’ and environmental in ‘now-ness’ that become less capable of being addressed by purely personal, corporate, local or short term solutions, so too narrowness of thinking will no longer suffice.

The conference provides a forum for discussion of the connections between nature, technology and human. the perspectives presented range from big picture analyses which address universal concern of Malay Architecture, to detailed case studies which speak of localized applications of principles and practices of Sustainability.
