Each year, the budget boasts about an increase in the number of social housing, but quantity is not a sufficient way to deal with the underlying issues of social housing.

Under maintenance, poor design and inefficient social facilities result in producing four-walled homes, but not habitats which enhance the well-beings of its occupants.

How could design be critically re-imagined for the existing image and expectation of social housing in Malaysia? How can good design and architecture uplift and enhance relationships within a social housing community?


Speakers will be announced soon.
