A New Dawn Malaysia Baharu
Malaysia Baharu For the past 37 years, the government of Malaysia has supported the landscape architecture profession. One person who stands tall among all is our beloved YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Salam Malaysia Baharu to all our readers, as we welcome the new leadership of our nation under the beloved YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, as Malaysia’s 7th Prime Minister. Over the years since Tun’s leadership as the 4th Prime Minister, from 1981-2003, he has been very close to our hearts at ILAM, as he set a benchmark for the landscape profession and its development, in Malaysia. Among the projects which elevated the role of landscape architects and the profession as a whole include Putrajaya - Garden City, Intelligent City; KLIA – Airport in the Forest, Forest in the Airport; KLCC Park, and many more. Not to be forgotten was the establishment of the world’s first National Landscape Department (JLN), under the then Ministry of Housing and Local Government, on 1 January, 1996. The establishment of JLN was to set a comprehensive landscape development direction for the nation and act as the agency to overlook national landscape planning and development. YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad also received several recognitions from ILAM, such as ILAM Honorary Membership on 29 August 1996. Subsequently, Tun Mahathir was awarded with the IFLA APR ILAM Award of Distinction for Landscape Architecture in Kuching, Sarawak and delivered a Prime Keynote Speech on “Malaysia: A Greener Tomorrow”, during the IFLA2014 Asia Pacific Congress in April of that year. In this issue, we also highlight the importance of the Landscape Architects Act, which will be essential to govern the profession and to ensure quality landscape development and the wellbeing of the citizens of Malaysia. We are also proud to celebrate one decade of the Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards MLAA and the grandeur of the award ceremony can be found in this issue.

ISOFU UPDATE EVENT CALENDAR 2019
For the past 37 years, the government of Malaysia has supported the landscape architecture profession. One person who stands tall among all is our beloved YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who has had a great deal to do with what we see today in comprehensive landscape planning for the nation. It was Tun who supported the opportunity for local landscape architects to play a vital role in the country’s mega developments, such as Putrajaya, KLCC and KLIA. We at ILAM hope, with the new leadership of YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as Malaysia’s 7th Prime Minister, our country will transform into a greener, sustainable and more conducive living environment for all.
Tun was the mastermind behind the establishment of the world’s first National Landscape Department (JLN), under the then Ministry of Housing and Local Government on 1 January, 1996. The establishment of JLN provided a comprehensive landscape development direction for the nation and acted as the agency to overlook national landscape planning and development. In the same year, YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad also received recognitions from ILAM, as an Honorary Member on 29 August, 1996.
In the spirit of Malaysia Boleh, and to save the environment for future generations, a nationwide event, called the “Millennium Tree Planting”, was mooted. Organised by the National Landscape Department, Ministry of Housing and Local Government, Kuala Lumpur City Hall, and municipal councils in all states, and the Tree Planting Group, the event took place on October 15, 2000, to celebrate World Habitat Day 2000.
ESTABLISHMENT OF NATIONAL LANDSCAPE DEPARTMENT & ILAM HONORARY MEMBERSHIP
NATIONAL LANDSCAPE DAY 03.03 Organised by the National Landscape Department, ILAM joined the National Tree Planting Campaign held at Taman Medan Idaman Kuala Lumpur. During the occasion, YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad mooted the idea of a day for tree planting. Later, he agreed to name it, National Landscape Day.
MILLENIUM TREE PLANTING PROGRAMME
This historic event was initiated by the then Prime Minister, YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at Taman Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. Participants from all levels of community, namely, government and private agencies, non-government organisations, educational institutions, security bodies and volunteer clubs were stationed throughout 152 locations in the country. 110,461 trees were planted in one minute at the same time, creating not just a Malaysia record, but also the World Record which still stands as of today.
Our Memories with YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad
The most historical moment for ILAM was the special recognition award: “ILAM-IFLA Award of Distinction for Landscape Architecture” presented by the then ILAM President, LAr. Mohd Fadrillah Mohd Taib, to Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, and witnessed by the IFLA World President, Désirée Martínez, in Kuching, Sarawak, during the IFLA Asia Pacific Congress 2014. Following the award ceremony, Tun delivered a Prime Keynote on the theme: “Malaysia - A Greener Tomorrow”.
A special courtesy call was held at the Perdana Leadership Foundation to meet YAB Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, to discuss a several matters in regards to the development of landscape architecture in Malaysia and how landscape architects can play a vital role in improving the quality of life for our future generations.
ILAM-IFLA AWARD OF DISTINCTION FOR LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
ILAM COURTESY VISIT TO PERDANA LEADERSHIP FOUNDATION
The Need for Landscape Laws and Regulations
The journey to be a Landscape Architect Landscape architecture is a field that deals with planning, design and management of the natural and built environment. This includes natural areas, urban spaces, outdoor green spaces, recreational areas and gardens. To qualify as a landscape architect, one has to go through 4 to 5 years of a unique and rigorous training to obtain skills to critically analyze and creatively solve planning and design problems. In addition, the person must also have a good understanding of horticulture, construction, project management, human social behaviour and natural systems.
Beyond Garden Spaces Landscape architecture development in Malaysia has progressed since the early 1980â€™s. With the formation of the National Landscape Department in 1996, and the National Landscape Policy in 2009, Malaysia is on the right track to be at par or better with developed countries such the USA, Australia and Japan. Landscape architectural planning and design exercises have become more complex such that it is not only about garden and planting design but also large parks, waterfronts, urban streetscapes, natural resources planning, and green infrastructure facilities such as storm water management, green walls, and green roofs. As a discipline, landscape architecture is advancing rapidly with landscape architects playing prominent roles, such as lead consultant, in multi-disciplinary projects.
Beyond A Single Discipline A landscape architects’ scope of work has crossed a threshold, as it now encompasses multiple practice areas such as public health, safety, economic development and the environment.As a result of modernisation and the expansion of landscape architecture practices,landscape architects must possess intensive technical competencies and experiences. Nevertheless, even though landscape architects do have a professional responsibility and accountability similar to allied professions such as engineers and architects, laws and regulations pertaining to landscape architects’ scope of works and practice are visibly absent, which may affect the quality of service and consequently jeopardise people or users’ safety and health.
In the Absence of Regulation and Law Due to the absence of a legal framework for the landscape architecture practice, over the past 20 years, the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (ILAM) has been working together with the National Landscape Department to request the Malaysian Government to enact a Landscape Architects Act.
This would ensure the public received the best services from landscape architects, as those in charge would be held accountable for services rendered. In addition, ILAM also supports the formulation of the Landscape Development Act to ensure public spaces will be properly allocated and developed with a certain uniformity, specification, and standard.
With these two acts, ILAM believes that the landscaped areas can serve their true function and add value that will benefit the community and improve wellbeing. Without these acts, Malaysia’s ability to project an image of a country that cares about its environment, and consequently its people, may be compromised.

Butterworth Outer Ring Road Urban Public Spaces Below Highway Design Idea Competition Date: 5 November 2018 – 25 January 2019 Venue: Butterworth, Penang This ‘Urban Public Spaces Below Highway’ is an initiative under the Butterworth Baharu programme to increase the amount of public spaces in the vicinity of the Penang Sentral harbour. This project aims to activate under-utilised spaces, especially those located under the Butterworth Outer Ring Road. Local residents are currently disconnected from a valuable public asset as the structure obstructs safe and direct connectivity to the shore. With this permanent alteration which prioritises vehicular demand, there is now a need to address the loss of community spaces by developing new possibilities. By establishing attractive and functional open spaces for community gatherings and healthy recreational use, the project aims to maximise the potential of these ineﬃciently used spaces and to improve live-ability in Butterworth. ThinkCity, in collaboration with the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (ILAM), and in partnership with Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai (MPSP), is calling upon Malaysians from all walks of life to contribute fresh and exciting ideas for creating new public spaces for the Butterworth community. This competition is also supported by MIP, PAM and MRCB (Penang Sentral) and managed by ILAM Youth Chapter (IYC). On 7 December 2018, an official site briefing and also press conference was organised, which attracted more than 250 participants, and various members of the media fraternity. During the session, both ILAM and ThinkCity delivered speeches, followed by a briefing by ThinkCity, and a Q&A Session. The competition is still open for registration from now till 25 January 2019.
