About The Speaker

Assoc. Prof. (Ind.) Ar. Sarly Adre Sarkum

Assoc. Prof. (Ind.) Ar. Sarly Adre Sarkum is an architecture futurist, sustainability proponent and design activist. He is active both in the architecture professional scene in the country with involvement as well as in the education of architects. He is regularly invited by various local and international entities to give opinions and lectures pertaining to design and sustainability. Previously he had helmed the Kuala Lumpur office of the firm BDA Architects Sdn Bhd as well as worked with Arkitek FAA Sdn Bhd. Due to his deep-rooted involvement in the industry, he was recently appointed as an Associate Professor (Industry) by University Malaya. Currently he helms the hybrid architectural design firm [SA]2 or Sarly Adre Sarkum Architecture Sdn. Bhd. which combines cutting edge architectural design solutions with extensive researched based explorative approach to solve challenging integrated design problems. The firm has garnered several international competitions and represented the country in several world class exhibitions. [SA]² was the brainchild of both Ar Sarly Adre and Ar Erdayu Oshara Omar. [SA]² was established on the notion that architecture has the capacity to transform life and improve the human condition. That people still matter most and that a few good designers can change the world. In [SA]² we believe that we will one day hand down this earth to our children and entrusted with that responsibility we must then endeavour our very best to care for it. Hence, our deep-rooted belief in sustainable development and community centric design solutions. [SA]² is a place of optimism where we have collected those who believe in these ideals into a league of extraordinary architects that would set out to make the world a better place. We make it our utmost goal that we leave those that we have touched with our work thinking that there is a better way to do things, there is a smarter way to do things. Our forte is bringing value through opening up new perspectives and ideas to our clients: with it the certainty that architecture as art appreciates and the final bottom line can be more than just fiduciary but rather socially, environmentally and spiritually as well. We aspire to provide solutions that other designers have not thought of hence our credo ‘Don’t just think out of the Box, Re-Think the Box’
