HAVE you ever looked at a building and wondered about its design or the secrets it holds within its walls?

SinggahKL 2024 presents a rare opportunity to traverse the thresholds of Kuala Lumpur’s esteemed structures, some of which are not accessible to the public.

The tour programme is inviting visitors to immerse themselves in the essence of these architectural landmarks, to not only observe but to also interact with the building owners.

This rare initiative, organised by the Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM), is a celebration of the ingenuity of Malaysian architects.

The two-day guided tour, SinggahKL 2024, slated for March 2 and 3, beckoned the curious and the admirers of design to reserve their spots at singgahkl.com

PAM president Abu Zarim Abu Bakar said the initiative, which commenced in 2019, received enthusiastic reception.

It has since become an annual programme, he said.

“By introducing these buildings, Malaysian architects will become a source of inspiration for the public, especially the next generation who will be the leaders in the fields of architecture and art for the progress of our country,” he said.

“What’s exciting is that the public will have an opportunity to directly engage with the building owners during the visit.”

The mission of SinggahKL 2024 was to bring the public closer to the architectural feats that epitomise Kuala Lumpur.

The programme was designed to foster appreciation through hands-on experiences and narratives shared by the creators themselves.

The featured sites include the Urban Museum Kuala Lumpur (Ur Mu), Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport, Asian Institute of Chartered Bankers (AICB) Building, Menara Hap Seng 3, W Hotel, Else Hotel, TNB Platinum, International Trade and Exhibition Centre (Mitec), Arata Bukit Tunku, International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL), Ceylonz Suites, Parkroyal Collection Kuala Lumpur, Kapas Heights Condominium, Air Angin Metamorphosis in Architecture, Panggung Eksperimen Universiti Malaya, The Five Damansara and PAM Centre.

Participants can choose any of these buildings, some of which won PAM Awards, for a guided tour that would be led by PAM architects.
