About the event:

The Borneo Architecture Festival is an annual event organized by Malaysian Institute of Architects. The event is organized in conjunction with World Architecture Day and will be held on 12th October 2018 in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

Baharash Bagherian will present the practice’s work driven by a sense of purpose to build a better world. Sustainability is in the DNA of Baharash Architecture and the heart of each project. The purpose of sustainable architecture is rapidly evolving as urban challenges grow, lifestyle habits change, socio-economic challenges expand and new technologies emerge. The increase rate of climate change is also fuelling new thinking in sustainability.

The next generation of sustainable architecture will be driven by new typologies that promote inclusivity, resilience and greater protection of the environment. They will also be less about buildings and more about creating healthy places that promote sustainability as a lifestyle.

The audience will consist of architect members, officials from local authorities, developers, engineers, contractors, designers, surveyors, students, as well as general public.

Baharash Architecture is an award winning design studio based in London and Dubai. We are building a better world by designing ground-breaking innovative environments that are sustainable, resilient and have a unique “sense of place”.

Each project in the studio is driven by a process of investigation, experimentation and always asking “what if?” The outcomes of these studies form the basis of the design. We are working holistically at all scales, designing masterplans, landscapes, buildings and interiors. For more information visit www.baharash.com
