Curtin’s reputation for excellence in the South East Asian region provided the basis for Sarawak State Government’s initiative to invite Curtin to establish an international university in Sarawak. Curtin Sarawak has been actively involved in Malaysian education for the past two decades and the establishment of Curtin Sarawak’s campus ensures that it will continue to increase its contributions towards excellence in Malaysian tertiary education.

Curtin Sarawak’s operations in Miri, Sarawak commenced in February 1999. In 2002, the new purpose-built campus in a garden opened, which is a world-class facility where stylish architecturally designed buildings complement state-of-the-art equipment and facilities coupled with sophisticated IT linkages to provide students access to the resources of Curtin, Western Australia. In November 1999, Curtin Sarawak was awarded the Multimedia Super Corridor status and was renewed in 2006.

Malaysia's Ken Yeang nominated for inaugural green design award
October 20, 2007 12:11 PM




Dr Ken Yeang, one of the world's leading architects
in ecological and passive low energy design.


KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 20 (Bernama) -- Malaysian Dr Ken Yeang, one of the world’s leading architects in ecological and passive low energy design, has been nominated for the inaugural ecoStyle Award.

The nomination was announced at the official launch of ’ecoStyle’ by NYC Inc and IMG Fashion to an international audience at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Los Angeles, USA.

An authority in green design that integrates both organic and inorganic elements in buildings, Dr Yeang is well-known as the inventor of the bioclimatic skyscraper which has had an impact around the world merging high tech and bio principles, and for his relentless pursuit of the ecological aesthetic in his building design.

“I am truly delighted to be in the running for the ecoStyle Award. The nomination is especially significant to me as a Malaysian and for Malaysia as it reiterates the importance of merging ecology and architecture design to harness a sustainable future,” Dr Yeang said.


ECO-DESIGN

Eco-design is designing in such a way that the human built environment integrates benignly and seamlessly with the natural environment. Both the human-made and the natural must blend together, so there will be no pollution, no waste, no detrimental consequences on the environment.

Dr Yeang is also optimistic that through collective ethical commitment and education, it is possible to get the whole world community to implement green features and aspects in not just the building environment but also in our businesses, industry and our lifestyles.

“This is something we all need to address for a common sustainable green future,” he added.

The ecoStyle Award, an initiative by ecoStyle, is a joint venture by NYC Inc. and IMG Fashion (two leading international event and marketing specialists) and, is supported by both Tourism Malaysia and Earth Pledge.

Malaysia, which has been acknowledged as one of the most pro-active developing countries in Asia in adopting environmental policies, is taking its role of environmental spokesperson one step further by sponsoring and hosting the ecoStyle Award.


ECOSTYLE AWARD

The ecoStyle Award has been established to honour several leading international designers.

In this inaugural year, they will be from fashion, architecture and the product design stream - acknowledging creativity and efforts to present stylish environmentally sustainable initiatives and opportunities to the world.

Effectively this is a global search for the most environmentally friendly and stylish innovators in design. Other international nominees to date for the ecoStyle Award include Jurlique beauty products, Terra Plana footwear and Knoll furniture.

ecoStyle is set to become an annual event that connects style icons and creative minds and helps to build momentum for an environmental consciousness.

It is a multi-faceted international lifestyle event and Asia’s first dedicated event that will focus attention on the importance of ecological sustainability and the environment through style and design.


OBJECTIVE

The event aims to educate the broader design industries and consumers on the importance an increased environmental consciousness will have on the future of planet Earth.

The award will be judged by a selection panel made up of high profile members from the style and design communities with a legitimate understanding and interest in the importance of environmental sustainability for the future of the planet.

The panel has started the selection process and all nominations will be finalised by the middle of November 2007. As the event grows in awareness and continues to build momentum, more categories are expected to be added to include landscape architecture, automobile, and film nominees.

ecoStyle will attract some of the world’s leading designers to Malaysia where they will showcase their eco-conscious and sustainable fashion and design innovations.

With a focus on style, this event promotes industry interaction and comprises of a publicly accessible exhibition component and a fundraising gala.

The invitation-only fund-raising gala which will take place here this Nov 22 will be aimed at raising funds for the event’s partner and beneficiary, Earth Pledge, with proceeds directed to a Malaysian-focused environmental cause, soon to be announced and secured.

To date, ecoStyle has already staged a spectacular launch event here (Sept 18) and last Thursday, a launch in Los Angeles to an international media gathering.

In the event’s inaugural year, ecoStyle presents the following highlight event components: the ecoStyle Award, the Future Fashion Gala and the ecoDiary initiative targeting ecoWarriors.

A definite must on the list of things to do in Cameron Highlands is a visit to the new Sungei Palas Tea Centre.

Recently opened by BOH Plantations at the Sungei Palas tea garden,it is just above Brinchang, in the very heart of the Cameron Highlands tea country.

Located on a hilltop, amidst rows of tea bushes and close to Gunung Brinchang, it offers the best possible introduction to Malaysian teas in a truly spectacular setting.

The Tea Centre is home to the Tea'ria, a souvenir and tea shop as well as an exhibition area with comprehensive information about the tea manufacturing process.

barbara cappochin award

zlgdesign is proud to receive the 2007 International Barbara Cappochin Foundation Award for Special Prize, for the BOH Cameron Highlands Visitor Centre project. With that we thank all those who deserve to be recognised for their support and contribution to help us realise the building.

The International Biennial “Barbara Cappochin” Prize for Architecture is launched in Paris. The purpose of the Foundation is to remember Barbara, a young student of the Faculty of Architecture I.U.A.V of Venice by promoting high quality architecture. This quality can only be obtained if the three essential figures, the Contractor, the Designer and the Constructor, work together to identify that thin line that connects life and architecture, by focusing on choices, ideas and materials in order to attain high quality results. This is the objective of the Foundation.

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.
