KUCHING: Malaysian Institute of Architects Sarawak Chapter (PAMSC) recently held a seminar here for its members on conservation and fire safety.
The conservation portion of the talk was conducted with members from the Sarawak Heritage Society, focussing on the successes of projects in Penang.
“Dr Jon Lim, a retired National University of Singapore architecture academic, traced the development of Penang houses from early colonial precedents to the extravagant ‘high society’ mansions of the 1920s,” said a press release from the institute.
The fire safety talk was by Chong Lee Siong, a member of the Uniform Building By-laws drafting committee, focussing on revisions.
“PAMSC has over the years actively participated in many reviews on matters pertaining to the regulations and By-laws in the building industry,” the press release added.
“In view of this, the local chapter of the architect’s institute organises talks and seminars frequently at our headquarters. The objective of these talks are two-fold: for the member’s continual professional development and to heighten public awareness of architecture, design and history.”
