As concerns continue to rise over the state of our buildings and their ability to withstand climate change, Sim Wie Boon speaks to Lillian Tay of Veritas Design Group and the immediate past-president of Malaysian Institute of Architects to get her take on the issue. She explains how most buildings here are structurally sound and should be able to withstand rising temperatures and strong wind conditions but the real threat is unplanned development and the need to more green about building our cities.
