A Glimpse of George Town Penang



Finite Resources

As the world’s population is growing at a startling rate, our finite landscape and natural resources are diminishing fast. How can the planning and design of our landscape spaces sustain these finite resources for better future living condition and environment?

Homogenous Culture & Diverse Population

Globalisation and the advancement of transportation system and connectivity render our cities' population to be more diverse in ethnicity, religion, nationality, ability and thinking. As landscape spaces are usually "public" in nature, how could the planning and designing of our landscape spaces cater to these diverse demands, needs and preferences?

Transient Living

The advancement of Internet of Things (IOT) has change many aspects of our life. The way we work, communicate, socialise, and play are different from the past decades. How can landscapes co-exist or complement this transient living environment where IOT is an integral part of our day-to-day life, now and the future?

Natural Disaster :
Expect the Unexpected

The effect of global warming that we are experiencing now causing the lost of biodiversity and extinction of wildlife. How does landscape architecture practice helps to reduce natural disaster occurrences? Do we have new methods, approaches, techniques and skills?
