SECOND RUNNER-UP

Orang Seletar Adaptation to Urbanisation
through Housing in Relation to Sense of Place

Peh Peng Cheong | Universiti Teknologi Malaysia

The housing proposal takes on the current issues of Orang Seletar at Kampung Bakar Batu, Johor Bahru where their living conditions are severely compromised by rapid urbanisation of Iskandar Malaysia. The interaction of units (micro) and neighbourhood (macro) is essential in creating the sense of place. Each components in the design contributes directly to the place making of the overall scheme. An understanding of their past and projection of the future was achieved to bridge the communal gap between the families and society. A translation of their social, economy and cultural aspects was achieved through environmental and spatial behavioural studies.
