About this Event

SYNOPSIS

Modernist buildings and landscapes in South-East Asia stand as a tangible and concrete embodiment of the region’s heroic post-independence nation-building era. Built between a couple of decades in the mid-20th century, the best examples possess high urban, architectural, social and economic significance. However, unrecognised as heritage and faced with mounting redevelopment pressures, these modern complexes are at a watershed moment. What are the alternative models of urban regeneration without tabula-rasa renewal? The conference aims to uncover and showcase how innovative adaptive reuse of modernist buildings and sites - once seen as avant-garde and progressive - could imbue a new lease of life and recover their 'cutting edge' through creative planning, programming and design, tackling pressing global issues such as environmental sustainability and urban liveability.
