Architectural Heritage Conservation in Malaysia: Recognition and Challenges



Malaysia is one of the fortunate countries that has many heritage buildings which are of immense architectural and historical values. Statistically, based on the heritage buildings inventory study undertaken by the National Museum in 1992, it is found that there are more than 35,000 pre-war buildings (pre-1945) in the 265 surveyed towns throughout Malaysia. Although architectural conservation in Malaysia is a relatively new practice in the local architectural scene but it is gaining positive improvement continuously. This chapter explains the architectural heritage in Malaysia and is followed by the architectural conservation in the country. All conservation legislations and guidelines involved in the Malaysian conservation movement are also discussed. This chapter ends with some discussions on building conservation challenges.
