Rarely has an architect caused as much sensation outside of the architecture community as Rem Koolhaas. His outstanding creations–such as the Dutch Embassy in Berlin, the Seattle Library and the Casa da Musica concert hall in Porto–are working examples of the Dutchman’s visionary theories about architecture and urban society. But Koolhaas’ work is as much about ideas as it is about constructing buildings; he is equally celebrated as a writer and social commentator. For Koolhaas, what is essential is not to create individual masterpieces, but to provoke and excite through the wide range of his activities. REM KOOLHAAS: A KIND OF ARCHITECT is an engaging portrait of a visionary man that takes us to the heart of his ideas. Directors Markus Heidingsfelder and Min Tesch have made a visually inventive, thought-provoking portrait of the architect, prompting Rem Koolhaas to state, “It’s the only film about me that I have liked.”

HOW THE GREEN KARMA IS GOING TO RUN OVER THE BROWN DOGMA or
THE FUTURE FOR SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS
Sustainability or ESD, most commonly called “green”, has become a mainstream political issue around the world in the last 10 years. Central to increases in energy efficiency and reductions in greenhouse gases (so called E2G2) are improvements in urban planning and building. But this hope, more like hype, is misplaced, either being simplistic in its intentions, or missing the mark in its effects. This talk discusses the current orthodoxy and shows how a culture of “real green” design could lead to a more sustainable future.

Prosperity and high economic growth in Malaysia have created a high demand for construction activities. As a consequence, this has attracted a huge number of foreign workers into this country to take up employment on site as unskilled labour doing manual jobs. Despite their contributions, the country is in a quagmire with a host of problems such as low quality works, delays, wastages, social problems, diseases, etc. As such, some form of government intervention is highly needed. Industrialisation of the construction industry is seen as the only feasible way forward. The government has laid out a comprehensive national Industrialised Building System (IBS) Road Map for the construction industry players to adopt in the industrialisation programme of the construction industry.
