FROM THE PAST
LAr. Fong Jeng Jong
As one of the most prosperous cities in the past, the present Ipoh has already become one of the second-tier cities in the country due to the fall of the tin industry. For the past 30 years, development in Ipoh had been slowed down and the youngsters started to leave the town to seek for better living and working opportunities.
However, from 2010s onwards, Ipoh was pinned on the world map once again, this time as one of the most-traveled cities in the world for its delicious food. On the other side of the coin, the huge influx of tourists has caused Ipoh lots of social problems. People start to concern about the planning and how to make Ipoh a better town in the future?

CHULALONGKORN UNIVERSITY CENTENNIAL PARK:
CREATING A FLOOD-PROOF PARK
BY BUILDING IT TO FLOOD
Managing Director, Landprocess, Thailand
Bangkok is sinking. Spilling out across the delta of the Chao Phraya River, the Thai capital was once known as the Venice of the East for its network of canals. The reality is that this city of 20 million people, built on shifting river mud, is sinking at the rate of more than one centimeter a year and could be below sea level as soon as 2030.
Thai landscape architect Kotchakorn Voraakhom designs parks, gardens, green roofs and bridges that address the city’s flooding problem while also reconnecting residents to their natural environment.
Chulalongkorn University Centennial Park plays an important functions for the flood-prone city like Bangkok: it collects and cleans water and reduces the urban heat island. The most amazing part of CU Park? It can hold nearly one million gallons of water during severe floods. (To put that into context, one million gallons is equivalent to an American football field being completely filled with water at a depth of 1.13 meters, or 3.71 feet.) Essentially, Voraakhom has created a flood-proof park by building it to flood.

lINEAR SURFACE DRAINAGE SOLUTIONS
IN URBAN AREAS
Technical Director Asia, Hauraton Malaysia
Climate change and urbanization are converging to challenge city drainage infrastructure due to their adverse impacts on precipitation extremes and the environment of urban areas. Linear drainage systems have gained growing interest in recent years, because water ﬂowing over large, impermeable surfaces and paved areas needs to be diverted quickly and directed away from walkways, roads, and building structures to prevent damages. Hear more about HAURATON´s “Linear Surface Drainage Systems” and how it removes excess water from urban landscape areas.

The Rojak Projek
THE ROJAK PROJEK is an initiative by TRP CREATIVES, a social enterprise that focuses on creating positive understanding and awareness by promoting our unity, culture and diversity.
It started off as an idea at the end of 2014 when a lot of negativity surfaced around Malaysia over the past couple of years, which slowly grew as they met new friends to join in on this persistent mission throughout 2015. The beginnings of these efforts were launched on New Years, 2016, for and with our fellow Malaysians to show new, creative and positive forms of how our Malaysian diversity is truly beautiful.
