BLOCK 1: GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE
Landscape Architect is a profession that focuses on forming and shaping spaces, landscape architecture is architecture with a broader scale, one that incorporates both buildings and the environment that surrounds them. Parks, public plazas, school campuses — all of these places are designed by landscape architects. So too are a fleet of strategies to mitigate flooding, from stormwater management systems to “green infrastructure” elements like living shorelines, river, marsh restoration and dune enhancement.

River of Life: Transforming Urban Connectivity via Green Infrastructure
Divided into three main components – river cleaning, river master-planning and beautification – the USD1.3-billion River of Life project covers the confluences of three city rivers, with a total area of 781 hectares and 63 hectares of water bodies. The project is set to bring the community ‘back’ to the river through a 100 per cent transformation into a vibrant waterfront with high economic and commercial value, rejuvenating the city’s river and re-connecting it to the surrounding urban fabric.

When Trees Meet Building
In an effort to create a more pleasant, healthier and sustainable built environment, architects, engineers and developers are creating increasingly greener buildings - and doing it in a more literal way than ever before. The current revival of green architecture began in the 1970s, when the energy crisis, coupled with growing awareness of humankind’s impact on the environment, propelled architects and engineers to think more carefully about sustainable development.
Although there are many different ways to approach sustainable building design, an increasing number of architects and engineers began to incorporate green roofs and other energy saving measures into their projects.
Feature Talk 1
TRX Public Realm
Building Malaysia's Financial District
LAr. Ahmad Yusri Mat Yusoff
TRX City Sdn Bhd
TRX is taking seriously the need for a dynamic public realm. Instead of a separated district, TRX is designed to seamlessly exist within its neighbourhood. The whole 70-acre district in the city centre will remain porous to the larger landscape around it, allowing for a public realm that
is fully integrated into the urban fabric.
At the centre of it all is a 10-acre park, designed across multiple levels, including on the roof of the shopping mall, creating numerous opportunities for visual and physical connectivity between these two important landmarks. A key component of the holistic sustainability agenda of TRX, the central park provides lush greenery and shade, increases natural habitats and ecological value, reduces the heat island effect, and collects rainwater for reuse.

BLOCK 2: DESIGN AT HEART
Sharing Session 2:
Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better, and 51-year-old Malaysian artist Eddie Putera proves it with his stunning miniature dioramas. Putera combines his talents of miniature modeling and photography to create scenes so detailed that it’s hard to believe they are all hand-made mini versions of objects, and not real life still photography.

Reuse, Recycle and Art
Tan Lay Heong
Tan Lay Heong aims to convey a powerful message about environmental degradation due to human actions, through arts made with recycled items.
Every new piece of art presents a distinct set of challenges for her. Using reusable wastes, she must conceptualise not only the final desired outcome but also the processes and techniques involved to transform these materials to get that final desired outcome.
In this empowering class, Hanisah from Condiment Strings will demonstrate a handful of her favorite knotting techniques and show you how to get started on your plant hanger. You will design and create your own macramé plant hanger with Hanisah’s expert guidance and support. Never fear if you think you are lacking in creativity, Macramé is a wonderful craft for expressing a vision you never knew you had while practicing mindfulness and meditation.
