On 25 July 2009 PAM Northern Chapter had organized the Green Building Index (GBI) Forum - MS 1525: Code of Practice on Energy Efficiency and Use of Renewable Energy for NonResidential Buildings in Penang. The forum was officiated by YAB the Chief Minister of Penang, Tuan Lim Guan Eng. It was attended by close to 110 participants, comprising of members of the building industry as well as architectural students from the School of Housing, Building and Planning (HBP), USM. Ar Nik Rahiman Taib, Chairman of PAM Northern Chapter, thanked GBI Sdn. Bhd. and PAM Central for choosing Penang as the first venue to launch this green building rating tools at the regional level after it was successfully launched at the national level in Kuala Lumpur on 21 May 2009. Ar Nik informed the audience that in June 2009, PAM had signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the School of HBP, USM to allow them to use the GBI rating tools in their architectural programmes. This, he said, was part of the effort by PAM to ensure that the green agenda will be fully understood and adopted by the students, our future professional and industry movers. Ar Boon Chee Wee, Deputy President PAM, gave an overview of the Malaysia GBI, its background and the objectives of the rating system. He also stressed the point that green buildings would not just make ecological and environment sense, but in the long term, these buildings would make sound economic sense too. In his keynote address, YAB the Chief Minister congratulated PAM

and ACEM for all the work done in developing the Malaysia Green Building Index to where it is now. He threw a challenge to the whole of the building industry players, in particular the developers, to fully adopt the GBI and help Penang to become the first green state in Malaysia. He added that the Penang state government is committed to protect, preserve and promote the environment for the future generation. Several programmes had been initiated to help reducing the carbon emission, such as waste-reduction, tree-planting, river-cleaning and transportation master plan. In an effort to reduce plastic bag consumption, in July this year, Penang became the first state to launch `No Plastic Mondays by imposing a charge of 20 cents per plastic bag at hyper/supermarkets every Monday. As it received overwhelming response from the public, the state government is now considering to extend the campaign further. He concluded that the Penang State government was very appreciative of the green agenda and will work with MPPP on how to implement the GBI. By adopting a sustainable development policy, the preservation of Penang as a World Heritage City under the guidelines set by UNESCO would definitely be further enhanced, ensuring the co-existence of both new and old developments in the heart of George Town, Penang. The launch event was followed by a seminar session whereby detailed explaination on MS 1525: Code of Practice on Energy Efficiency and Use of Renewable Energy for Non-Residential Buildings were given by the four speakers, namely, En Mohamed Nizar Musa, Ir Looi Hip Peu, Ir Ahmad Izdihar Supaat & Ar Von Kok Leong.

There were parallel Committee meetings and Fellowship meeting held on the 17th August before the Council Meeting proper.

On the same day, the ARCASIA office bearers had their pre-Council meeting while the UIA Region IV also held a short meeting among the UIA Region IV Officials who were present. The chairpersons of the these meetings would report their proceedings and findings on the second day the ARCASIA Council Meeting. The ARCASIA Fellowship comprises of delegates who have attended as official delegates the ARCASIA Council meetings. It is meant to be a think-tank in offering suggestions or ideas for the Council to deliberate and consider. Their suggestions were presented to the Council during the second day of the Council meeting. The 30th ARCASIA Council meeting held on 18 and 19 August was presided by the chairman Mubasshar Hussein of IAB (Institute of Architect Bangladesh). The meeting was attended by all 17 member countries - one of the few occasions with full attendance. The President of UIA Louise Cox gave a short opening remarks emphasising the importance of ARCASIA to UIA. Louise Cox is no stranger to ARCASIA as she has been attending many ARCASIA meetings even before she became the UIA President. She also spoke on the importance of architecture education, conservation and sustainable development. Chairman Mubasshar Hussein thanked the President of UMA Mr B.Batjav for hosting the event and all member countries, many of whom have traveled a long way for their full attendance at the meeting At the Council meeting, each member country also reported on the state of Architecture of the respective country on the previous year. PAM reported on the successful launch of GBI in May 2009 and thanked SIA, BCA of Singapore and the Green Building Council Australian for their assistance in this regard. PAM also thanked SIA, ASA, IAI and especially chairman Mubasshar for their support in attending Datum: KL09, and we again extended our invitation to all ARCASIA members to attend Datum: KL10 in 2010. A book on the history of ARCASIA, initiated 5 years ago by the then chairperson Yolanda Reyes is finally completed. Measuring 34cm x 27cm x 2cm it is quite a tome of a book that chronicles the history and events of ARCASIA over the last 39 years since its inception in 1970. Another book on heritage Architecture in ARCASIA member countries is now being prepared by IAB.
4 BA August 2009

IAP (Institute of Architect Pakistan) presented a comprehensive update on their preparation for next years ARCASIA in Lahore. Initially there were concerns over security and safety in Lahore but these were quelched by the IAPs warmth, earnestness and enthusiasm in welcoming all delegates to Lahore. VAA (Vietnam Associates of Architects) would be hosting the 2011 ARCASIA meeting in Da Nang, a resort city in Vietnam. JIA (Japan Institute of Architects) reported on the progress of their preparation for UIA Congress themed Design 2050 to be held in Tokyo in 2011 and urged all ARCASIA members to support the grand event. There was a very close contest between JIAs George Kunihiro and PAMs Tan Pei Ing for the next ARCASIA chairmanship. George Kunihiro was elected the next ARCASIA chairman by a majority of just one vote! There were very strong feelings among ARCASIA members to support Tan Pei Ing as the chairperson after George Kunihiro. An impressive exhibition of member countries architecture and the entries for the ARCASIA Awards 2009 was held at the Exhibition Hall of the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry For the first time in the ARCASIA history, the two day ARCASIA Forum 15 with the theme City and Politics was officially opened by the President of the host nation, the President of Mongolia, Mr Ts Elbegdorj in the Government Palace in the centre of the City of Ulaanbaatar. President of JIA, Yutaka Izue gave the first keynote speech entitled The Japanese Architecture Stems back to the Japanece Spirit followed by speakers from Hong Kong, China, Mongolia, Japan and Bangladesh over the two-day Forum. At the end of the Forum, there was a traditional Friendship Night where each member country performed a dance, song or sketch to celebrate the spirit and friendship of ARCASIA. Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand made a joint presentation of Bamboo Dance while SIA Vice President Theodore led the group in rendering a song. The delegates were very well taken care of by the Mongolian students. Even though many of them did not speak good English, their warmth, friendliness and enthusiasm has touched the hearts of all delegates, thus dispelling the old-wifes tale that it is inappropriate to enlist local students to help out in our international functions and event. In spite of their lack of resources and English-speaking man-power, the Union of Mongolian Institute of Architects, led by its President Mr B.Batjav had proven that it is possible for a developing country to successfully host an international event with sheer hard work, determination and enthusiasm.
