RESTORING STADIUM MERDEKA – FOR THE RECORD

Posted on Updated on

Restoring Stadium Merdeka - For the Record

Organized by Badan Warisan Malaysia in collaboration with Think City Institute.

Webinar Details

Date: Saturday, 12 December 2020
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM (inclusive of Q&A)
Moderator: Lim Wei-Ling, President, Badan Warisan Malaysia
Free Admission

ABOUT THE TALK

Professor Ar. Laurence Loh shares with us the inside story behind the highly successful restoration of Stadium Merdeka. It is a story worth telling as it embodies the personal agendas and missions of key personalities in Badan Warisan Malaysia and describes the conversations that led up to the execution of the project.

What went on behind the scenes to set the stage for one of Malaysia’s most important conservation projects undertaken to date? 

How did Badan Warisan Malaysia, through Laurence’s technical leadership, craft the conservation approach to ensure it attained the Award of Excellence in the 2008 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards cycle?

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Professor Ar. Laurence Loh, AA Dip, APAM, MIID, ICOMOS, FHKICON, graduated from the Architectural Association School of Architecture in 1974 and returned to Penang in the same year to start his professional career. Laurence is a self-taught architectural conservation pioneer who has dedicated a large portion of his professional life and time to putting Penang and Malaysia on the World Heritage map through his high-profile architectural conservation projects, both theoretical and physical. The restoration of the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion (1995 PAM Award of Excellence in Conservation and 2000 UNESCO Most Excellent Award) kickstarted his involvement in the field. In 2019, PAM bestowed upon him the PAM Gold Medal Award for Design Excellence.

As an architect, he has consistently produced best practice exemplars that set benchmarks for the cultural profession to emulate and he continues to push the boundaries to match universal expectations. His major architectural achievements, of which some are modern works, are iconic milestones that have directly and indirectly catalyzed change and influenced the architectural conservation process, design and policy locally, nationally and internationally.

Love MY Heritage

Badan Warisan Malaysia’s Love MY Heritage campaign aims to discover, collect and archive Malaysians’ valuable memories, which include personal, social, and historical, with the aim of sharing them with the world and thus promoting the idea of shared heritage. Everyone has their own version of heritage that they hold on to. It would be riveting to learn, hear and read the people’s stories and how they see heritage as part of their lives.

Love MY Heritage intends to invoke nostalgia and memories of heritage within individuals or groups that happened in the past either the heritage still remain until now or it’s been demolished, abandoned or faded. Heritage can be tangible or intangible, tangible refers to things that we can store or physically touch, for example, traditional clothing, tools, buildings, artwork, and monuments. Intangible heritage refers to things that are not physical items but exist intellectually, for example, oral traditions, rituals, beliefs and skills to produce traditional crafts. 

This campaign focuses on Malaysian Heritage, parallel with its name where ‘MY’ is the abbreviation of Malaysia and as indication that the heritage is “ours”.  Heritage is inclusive of features belonging to our diversified culture, such as traditions, languages, or buildings that were created in the past and still have historical importance. Heritage is the sum total of our memories, experiences, records, artifacts, and traditions that we have inherited. Heritage has brought together people from different levels and diverse backgrounds; Malaysia has been and continues to be a melting pot for diversity.

We invite you to participate and share the stories of your Malaysian heritage with us by submitting digital photos with a caption via the designated online platform.

Fraser’s Hill Resort and Spa Plan

Posted on Updated on

BWM MEDIA STATEMENT 

3 August 2020

Badan Warisan Malaysia (BWM), the leading national heritage NGO in Malaysia that was established in 1983, is saddened to learn of the recent destruction of important heritage buildings in Fraser’s Hill, which has resulted in the loss of priceless history and architectural heritage.

BWM is deeply concerned about the unnecessary destruction of the country’s built heritage. BWM Council is issuing this statement to disagree with this act of built heritage demolition.

As a body, we are actively working to try to preserve the country’s heritage for future generations. We are therefore disappointed to hear that these important aspects of architectural significance have been demolished without any due consideration.

Fraser’s Hill celebrated the centenary of its establishment as a hill station in 2019. Its unique location in the forested highlands of Peninsular Malaysia and limited access has allowed Fraser’s to preserve its distinctive historical, architectural and natural heritage. Unchecked over-development would jeopardise these qualities that have made it attractive to both local and foreign visitors for a hundred years.

Built heritage and intangible heritage values should be considered by the state administration, when evaluating tourism resources. It is vital that the state authorities control future development to maintain the existing rural scale, and not impose urban highrise scale, which will destroy the very charm of Fraser’s Hill which attracts tourists from far and wide.

Although we acknowledge that these are privately owned properties, it is indeed a shame that an opportunity was lost to document the architectural features of these iconic building through measured surveys. As far as we are aware, architectural salvage and archiving was not done before the demolition, for preservation and reuse.

On a separate note, BWM applauds and appreciates the recognition and the strong initiatives recently undertaken by DBKL to help boost tourism in the Federal Capital through the recognition of 353 locations and buildings as historical sites under the Jejak Warisan project in Kuala Lumpur.

We hope these type of government initiatives will be far-reaching and extend to cover more states in Malaysia to protect our heritage for the country’s future generations. What is lost is gone forever.

A petition under Change.Org has garnered 5,000 signatures thus far: https://www.change.org/p/ikhasas-group-call-for-review-of-fraser-s-hill-resort-spa?recruiter=55227218&utm_source=share_petition&utm_campaign=psf_combo_share_abi&utm_medium=whatsapp&recruited_by_id=42444930-c401-0130-8cf2-3c764e0455b2&utm_content=washarecopy_23585133_en-GB%3A0
