Malaysian Academy of Han Studies
- Local Architect
The Malaysian Academy of Han Studies is a new school in Malaysia which aims to build and function as a self-sustaining community. Parents, teachers, staff and children will all live together, learning and teaching with the academy on a fully charitable and donated site.
The heart of the school’s curriculum and function lie in the core principles of Confucianism, Taoism, and ultimately Buddhism. The form of the academy is inspired by the Tulou Clusters in southern China and creates an inclusive village atmosphere, whilst promoting circulation of people, energy and ideas alongside the ventilation and light that fl ows through the buildings louvred walls.
Blending a Malaysian roof vernacular with an inverted Chinese historical community architecture, the centre is a contemporary fusion of tradition and new ideas.
