Noraini Narodden attended the Young People’s Lab 2017, which was organized by the Real Estate & Housing Developers Association in collaboration with PAM Youth Committee, Malaysian Institute of Planners, Institute of Engineers Malaysia, Institute of Landscape Malaysia, and the Malaysian Institute of Interior Designers, supported by Think City & Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur.
The event took place on the 7th of the August and the theme ‘Let’s Revive My City: One Space at a Time’.
The YPLAB is a day workshop for young professionals (under 40 years of age) to come together and contribute ideas to revive a selected urban enclave. This year’s site was Medan Pasar, a square surrounded by historical buildings and a clock tower.
The event was filled with youthful energy and vigour; participants (divided into 10 groups) required to carry out site analyses, highlight issues to be addressed and propose ideas and solutions to be presented a panel of judges.
