Salam Sejahtera and happy new year 2018 to all our readers, from the Bulletin Landscape editorial table. The past year, 2017, was an exciting year for ILAM as we had many programmes organised by our chapters, and collaborations with various agencies. We will share more of those stories throughout this issue. In 2017, among our key programmes were the SPARK 2017-International Landscape Architecture Dialogue, Penang Eco Excursion, ILAM-Khazanah Nasional Taman Tugu Greenovation Design Competition, ILAM-MGBC CPD Series - Urban Farming in Community Planning, and many others. These activities have opened up opportunities for ILAM to engage with more people in the industry and enabled us to work hand in hand with public and private sectors. As the opening to the year 2018, we organised the Taiping and Kuala Sepetang Heritage Excursion in January, followed by public space activation activities for the World Urban Forum, WUF9. We will be continuing to bring you more exciting programmes for 2018. Amongst them, in the pipeline, is our 10th anniversary of the Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards MLAA Gala Night 2018.

Landscape Architecture

Trends 2018 of Landscape Architecture Industry Excellence 2007-2017

Landscape architectural design is an ever-changing practice which suits current social needs, responds to surroundings, and shapes the lifestyle we live today. Each year, the Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards (MLAA) observes the design trends that influence our current landscape spaces. Below are the top 10 picks.

01 PRODUCTIIVE LANDSCAPE Productive landscape is a design concept integrating food production into the design of urban open spaces or living environments which serve to connect and educate the public about plants which are edible, yet aesthetic and functional, for landscape purposes.


02 Biophilic Design Biophilia is defined as the inherent human inclination to affiliate with nature. Biophilic design, an extension of biophilia, incorporates natural materials, natural light, vegetation, views of nature, and other experiences of the natural world, into the modern built environment.



03 Forest Wilderness In our towns and cities, nature has been reduced, due to rapid urbanisation, yet there is a way to inject a little piece of nature - with overgrown plants, less managed landscape, and incorporating a more unkempt look, a forest-like design, and all sandwiched within tightly-knit urban spaces.


04 Outdoor Room Today, there is an increased usage of outdoor spaces in the garden, and purposefully landscaped spaces for leisure, socialising and relaxation. Outdoor rooms or a confined landscape space can double-up as activity spaces, and also intimate, and quiet spaces, within innovative landscape designs.


05 Intercity Green Networks A green network for recreational purposes, such as jogging or cycling pathways, has become a trend in cities, which is now expanding beyond city limits, connecting with suburban areas, thus creating a new way of commuting and reducing one’s own carbon footprint.


06 Raw & Seasoned Active landscape spaces often incorporate raw and unpolished materials that season over time, which creates a timeless feel. More and more landscape designs are using untreated bricks, flooring, walls, and other items, such as unpolished concrete within buildings and hardscape treatments, to bring a touch of modernity, and lower maintenance costs to the design. HELP UNIVERSITY, SUBANG




07 Frame of Surprises Walls and doorways often frame elements of surprise in landscape design. This design trend has been revived recently through the use of layers of walls, separating outdoor spaces, and leading to small, private and cozy enclaves. Each turn in such a design is a change of view, with an element of surprise to offer for visitors.


08 Organic & Irregular Oval, curved, and irregular lines and shapes have taken centre-stage as they create a less formal feel to a landscape design, while adding a little futuristic touch at the same time.


09 Bold & Beautiful Bold colours, with high contrasting effects, stand up amidst a lush, green backdrop. Designs with dots of contrasting colours are often used for garden elements, design features and motifs, which quickly catch the eye.


10 Ground to the Sky A new design movement is now emerging which seamlessly connects ground levels to rooftop gardens, and provides continuous green spaces for public enjoyment. This can be achieved via a ramp which leads to green, open spaces on a rooftop, or connected via a meandering pathway, or an undulating section, shaded with trees, and cooled by flowing streams and water courses.





Kebun-Kebun Bangsar


Bukit Pantai Bangsar

A Sunday morning was well spent by nearly 50 ILAM members and families, who volunteered for the Kebun-Kebun Bangsar project. The programme started with a briefing about the background of the project by Seksan, followed by the planting of 300 purple flowering herbaceous plants, Ruellia simplex, along the slopes. The participants also learned composting techniques from the experts, as part of the enjoyable activities.


Urban Heritage Walk


Laman Tun Perak River of Life Medan Pasar

Another family orientated activity, organised by ILAM, focused on the urban heritage and river revitalisation project. 50 participants and family members gathered at the countdown clock at Dataran Merdeka for a briefing by Joanne Mun, from ThinkCity, about the Laman Tun Perak pocket park project. After the visit to the park, participants strolled along the River of Life project and were briefed by LAr. Phuan Ying Zee and LAr. Syamim Azahari from AECOM Malaysia, about the river revitalisation project for the Klang and Gombak Rivers. A stop was made at Masjid Jamek, to learn about the mosque restoration, before continuing to Medan Pasar and Lorong Bandar 13, to visit the ThinkCity urban intervention project.
