FuturArc Prize 2023: Malaysia’s Merit Recipient Awarded

3 JULY 2023 – On Friday, 23 June 2023, FuturArc Prize (FAP) presented a Merit award at the gala event of BCI Asia Awards for Malaysia, taking place at the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur.

Held with the theme of Cross-Generational Architecture, FAP 2023 is an international Green design competition that explored the rapid change of societal compositions throughout Asia. The theme asked entrants, comprising architecture professionals and students alike, to envision sustainable design solutions for future generations amidst ongoing climate and planetary challenges.

In Malaysia, the award went to Tan Yin Yee for her entry titled Frangible 15: School of Counter-Hegemony. Set in the historic Brickfields area, the proposal sought to empower cultural and artistic activities in a mixed-use building constructed above a sunken clay pit.

Tan, who is a recent architecture graduate of UCSI University Kuala Lumpur, will receive a cash prize of SGD500, certificate and 1-year subscription to FuturArc digital magazine.

The entry will be featured along with other winning and Merit proposals in the 3rd Quarter (September) issue of the FuturArc print magazine.
