Malaysian Low-Rise Architecture

Malaysia



Code:
Population ( 2006 Est.)    : 27,392,442
source : Internet Usage in Asia

The Federation of Malaysia or simply Malaysia, is a country in Southeast Asia. It consists of two geographical regions divided by the South China Sea:

West Malaysia or Peninsular Malaysia on the Malay Peninsula shares a land border on the north with Thailand and is connected by the Johor Causeway and the Tuas Second Link on the south with Singapore.

East Malaysia, consisting of the federal territory of Labuan and the states of Sabah and Sarawak, occupies the northern part of the island of Borneo, bordering Indonesia and the Sultanate of Brunei.

Malaysia, a multiracial, multi-religious, and multi-cultural country with a population of 27 million, Malay Muslims stand at a little more than half of the population, followed by Chinese and Indians, the other two large ethnic groups, and many other minorities from various ethnic origins.

Ethnicity and religion are closely related in Malaysia. In a very simplistic generalization, Malays are Muslim by constitutional definition, and people of other races are usually not; the other races are free to practice their own religion. This simple belief of ‘Muslim is Malay’ has often led to the undermining of the other Muslim communities in Malaysia who are not Malay, such as the Indians, Pakistanis, Thais, people of Arab / Yemeni descent, part of the Melanaus, Dusuns and Kadazans in East Malaysia, and also, the Chinese Muslims.

Architecture in Malaysia :
Malay Architecture
Islamic Architecture
Moorish architecture
Chinese Architecture
Indian architecture

Traditaional Malay Architecture
Kenangan Palace - Kuala Kangsar, Perak

Comfortably cradled in a crook of Perak River, Kuala Kangsar is a well preserved old Royal Town where its serenity and its well-maintained old palaces are worth a mention.

Istana Kenangan was built around the same time as Istana Iskandariah. After the calamity of the Big Flood of 1926, when the original palace, Istana Sri Sayong, was almost swept away, a decision was made to built a new palace that is on higher ground. Istana Kenangan was built as a temporary mausoleum for the late Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Iskandar Shah (Marhum Kadasallah), while awaiting the completion of Istana Iskandariah nearby.

Melaka Sultanate Palace
this wooden palace is built based on the description of what the Melaka Palace is like from "Malay History".

Muzium Kebudayaan (Cultural Museum) was inaugurated in March 1954 by the then Resident Commissioner of Melaka, G.E.C. Wisdom, C.M.G., in a Dutch house built around 1660. The museum was later moved to the Stadhuys in 1982 before it was finally moved into its own complex in the late 1980's.

The RM2.5 million museum was officially opened to the public on July 17, 1986 by Malaysia's Prime Minister Dato' Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Currently, the museum houses about 1,350 items in the form of artefacts, prints, photographs and drawings which represent the history and cultural heritage of the Malay Sultanate of Melaka and the various communities, which came to settle in Melaka during that period.

The three-storey building is divided into eight chambers and three galleries including chambers of the Royal band, weaponry, decorative arts, emissaries and gifts, a recreation hall, an audience hall and an Islamic hall.

The galleries depict the famous clash between the legendary warriors Hang Tuah and Hang Jebat, traditional costumes and the royal bedchamber. Exhibits include prints and photographs of the Melaka Sultanate, a model of the Sultan Mansur Shah Palace, Malay weapons, Malay traditional wedding dress, jewelleries and brassware.

Wow! Some of this stuff is truly breathtaking. The way the buildings incorporate the surrounding landscape in their overall design is excellent!

Kenyir LakeTasik Kenyir or Kenyir Lake is an artificial lake located in the state of Terengganu in northeast Malaysia created in 1985 by the damming of the Kenyir River. It is the largest man-made lake in Southeast Asia. The lake covers 260 kmē and contains 340 small islands. Although an artificial lake, the area has been successfully developed for eco-tourism, and there are many resorts around its shores. Fishing is popular, as are jungle treks, waterfalls and caves. Because the lake is a reservoir, the water level can vary depending on the month. The water level is highest (and the lake consequently the most beautiful) in March and April. According to the locals, the best season for fishing is August when the water level is lower.

Kemaman, Terengganu
Terengganu has a beautiful coastal road that takes you through most of the fishing ports and towns in the state. The Kemaman district developed tremendously during the mid-90's economic boom, when housing projects mushroomed overnight. Modern shops replaced the quaint old wooden shops and roads were widened to accommodate increased traffic. But, the slowdown in the economy has left an obvious mark on the towns. Apart from a stopover to refuel and for some food, Kemaman has little to offer.

Just on the outskirts of town, along the river sits a little fishing village little known to outsiders. The tiny river jetty is often crowded with colourful Terengganu fishing boats. Noises from fishermen sailing in after a day's catch can be heard from afar, blown in with the sea breeze. During the hot afternoons, the fishermen are seen mending their nets and traps under the shady trees nearby.

Terengganu State Museum
The Terengganu State Museum’s building is an artifact in its own right. The overall build-up consists of the Main Museum, a Maritime Museum, a Fisheries Museum, botanical and herb gardens, and four houses built in the traditional Terengganu style.

To further emphasise the cultural flavour of the state, the Main Museum is built on 16 stilts. The four main blocks are joined to form a large network of buildings housing 11 galleries.

This museum was launched by the late Sultan of Terengganu, Sultan Mahmud Al-Muktafi Billah Shah, on April 20, 1996. Within its walls are historical remnants, nature, art, Islamic artifacts, textiles and more.
