This question was debated during an important forum organised by the School of Architecture and Interior Design moderated by Azim Afifi. Panel speakers —Dr. Eric Leong, Kuek Chee Peng and Evonne Chong, experts of the interior design field—have expressed their professional opinions while discussing local and international case studies including iconic buildings such as Kuala Lumpur’s Pudu Jail; Penang’s St. Paul’s Church at Gurney Paragon Mall; and the United Kingdom’s Buckingham Palace. The discussion painted the architecture landscape in Malaysia and elsewhere which made our students think—to preserve or to sustain?
