KUALA Lumpur may rejuvenate old areas by repurposing them into uban villages to raise the quality of life in the city, with a model of this concept put on display in Medan Pasar for the 9th World Urban Forum (WUF9).

A pair of basic micro-housing units with a couple of garden swings, wooden benches, manmade ponds with plants and enhanced with miniature fountains, exuded a feeling of tranquillity. The whole set-up is the centre of attraction currently in downtown Kuala Lumpur.
