30 Under 40
Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia (PAM)
Design is a key differentiator in global competitiveness in this age of creative economy, and we have seen countries, including those in Asia, which have invested heavily in nurturing, retaining and promoting their design talents are now emerging as formidable global design power houses, and ranked higher up in global indices on competitiveness and innovation.

“30 Under 40” featuring 30 emerging Malaysian architects, all under the age of 40 – they who have by their own talent and tenacity, developed their skills, knowledge, and creativity under the tutelage of their principals, past and present architects, more so than any other profession, are said to be the most altruistic.

These 30 emerging architects were selected through juried portfolio submission; some have come into their own as Professional Architects, some are still on that journey yet, but they have all demonstrated by their body of works todate, built or un-built, a credible level of critical architectural thinking and design leadership.
