The Tropical House for Orang Asli Design Competition
The Tropical House for Orang Asli Design Competition is part of the KUALA LUMPUR ARCHITECTURAL FESTIVAL 2019 (KLAF2019: TOMORROW)’s programme in collaboration with Epic Society.
Epic (Extraordinary People Impacting Communities) is a social enterprise that creates platforms that inspire, mobilise and empower people for personal and community transformation, with a vision to make collaborative social impact accessible to all.
The Epic Homes programme is designed to develop support networks by bringing together rural and urban folk through the act of building homes, leading to the development of cooperative, resilient and sustainable communities.
The KLAF2019 International Design Competition aims to widen access to designs, providing potential options for the Orang Asli. Ideas and designs that emerge from the KLAF2019 International Design Competition will be shared and discussed with them for further exploration. Dialogue and discussion will also be organised with various stakeholders such as relevant government bodies to help advocate for more alternatives to our current housing for low-income rural communities. This we hope will lead to a bigger discussion on development, partnerships and how we as a country can continue to mobilise our resources for each other.
