Architecture in Malaysia

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Malaysian Architecture. We aim to include buildings that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Malaysia. The focus is on contemporary Malaysian buildings but information on traditional Malaysian buildings is also welcome.

We have 1 page of Malaysian Architecture selections with links to many project pages.
