In the current world environment where climate change and global warming are real and looming threats, the importance of combining modern, functional building design with balanced and sustainable landscape planning and design cannot be underestimated. ILAM President, Assoc. Prof. LAr. Dr. Osman Mohd Tahir, states that recent international endorsement of the MLAA has raised the profile of the local landscape architecture industry and hopes the awards will bring all stakeholders of the built environment together to appreciate the importance of a quality outdoor living environment.

In conjunction with the awards ceremony, ILAM has released the MLAA 2015 Yearbook, a showcase compilation of the awards’ official entries. The Yearbook features some of the most aesthetically pleasing, innovative and ground-breaking designs to be seen in the region. The introduction of award categories focused on environmentally sound, sustainable designs is also in line with our Platinum Sponsor, SP Setia Berhad’s commitment towards safe and eco-friendly developments, as emphasised by Acting President and CEO, Dato’ Khor Chap Jen. SP Setia has carved a reputation as an industry leader with its many FIABCI award-winning eco-townships.
