Recent Malaysian Architecture
We were pleased to discover that 7 of IEN's building projects are featured in the new book "Recent Malaysian Architecture, vol. 2" published by the Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM). This is yet another testament to the fact that it is possible to combine good architecture with climate responsive green building design. Examples include our Diamond Building, where IEN were instrumental in giving shape to the building by studying the sunpath of Malaysia and recommending 25 degree outward tilting building shape to achieve the self-shading facades. And the award-winning "Paramit Factory in the Forest", where IEN worked closely with the architect to provide effective shading, including the impressive over-arching louver roof, as well as good daylighting throughout the building. The seven building projects, for which IEN was the green building consultant, are HELP University Subang 2, Paramit Factory in the Forest, Kompleks Kerja Raya 2 (KKR2), Suasana PjH, Shell Tower, Diamond Building and the Big Dutchman Agriculture HQ.
The authors of the book with ISBN 978-967-5264-23-8 are Lee Chor War, Aw Siew Bee and Dr. Tan Loke Mun.
