History on Repeat #5: British Malaya through the Lens of Architecture

Mariana Isa, Assistant Honorary Secretary, International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) Malaysia

History

History on Repeat is an eight-part miniseries that aims to delve into key aspects of Malaysian history. While we won’t be able to cover every period and topic in our vast and complex past, we will be having a series of conversations on key subjects, places and themes, and discussing why our history still matters today. For our fifth episode, we explore the history of British Malaya through the lens of architecture. Buildings have many stories to tell us about the past, and they are interesting historical sources in part because we can still go inside, walk around and learn from many of them today. Our guide through British Malaya’s fascinating architectural history is Mariana Isa, Assistant Honorary Secretary of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) Malaysia.
