Restoring Stadium Merdeka - For the Record

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

Moderator: Lim Wei-Ling, President, Badan Warisan Malaysia

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.
