Architect Expo is the largest exhibition in ASEAN that showcases architecture, and construction materials and technology. It was first introduced by the ASA in 1986, making this its 33nd year. More than 350,000 visitors participate each year, with numbers increasing on an annual basis. It is our objective to show the country’s potential in every aspect of architecture, such as construction technology, products for architecture, from interior to landscape. This year, the expo has several exhibitions and activities to offer such as forums, seminars, and services for ASA’s members and members of the public.
The main concept of
the ASA Expo 34th edition is
Architect’21 - Refocus Heritage’ aims to raise public awareness and understanding on the concept of ‘heritage’ in several dimensions. Many might suppose that conservation and maintenance of heritage sites is limited to government officers or conservators, and therefore is not relevant to them. However, it is present in everyday life and concerns everyone regardless of the jobs and roles that we hold. The owner of an old house in need of a maintenance, for example, will need information on the right materials and construction to use, as well as the cost incurred. Similarly, the renovation of an old building to create new business opportunity, can generate value added for the community and society, as we can see from the several creative communities that arose from the old quarters throughout the country.
