Description - New Malaysian House by Robert Powell

This collection of 25 recent houses by a disparate group of architectural practices demonstrates a remarkable flowering of Malaysian design talent that has been germinating since the mid-1980s. The houses range from luxury detached bungalows set in extensive tropical gardens and weekend retreats in the forest to gated communities that are springing up in Kuala Lumpur and elsewhere in Malaysia, to extended family houses. All are distinguished by a singular quality of innovative design as the architects sought to explore new approaches for designing with climate and in the cultural context of Malaysia.
