Kuala Lumpur Architecture Tours

Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia. Founded in 1859, it was begun as a small tin mining town at the confluence of Klang and Gombak Rivers during the British colonial rule. Inhabited by nearly 2 million people, Kuala Lumpur today, or simply known as KL, is an integral part of the larger metropolitan area of Klang Valley or Greater Kuala Lumpur.

Kuala Lumpur faced a rapid development and urbanisation during the 1980s when Malaysia was transformed from agricultural to manufacturing based economies. It was in the 1990s that saw mega construction projects commence in KL. These included the Kuala Lumpur International Airport – KLIA, Sepang, Selangor, by architect Kisho Kurokawa and the Petronas Twin Towers – KLCC, by architect Cesar Pelli, which successfully put the city into the global limelight of modern architectural marvels.

Another significant and elegant building that isn’t so well known outwith Malaysia is Dayabumi Complex by Arkitek MAA and BEP Akitek.

Walking Tours of Kuala Lumpur can involve advice (for an agreed fee) ahead of trips about types and areas of Malaysian buildings.

We are more than happy to accommodate your needs and interests on our Kuala Lumpur Architecture Tours.

We can provide information on programme, geographical areas and building types up to a year ahead of your tour. For example a group of architects interested in innovative Kuala Lumpur housing could be provided with tailored information allowing a tour programme to be agreed prior to their visit to Malaysia in South East Asia.

Visitors can be met from the airport, their accommodation, or at the starting point of their Malaysian architectural walking tour.
