Abstract

Attempts to show that urban communities in Malaysia should be designed with its own identify, not borrowed from a foreign source. It will also try, based on a study of several traditional communities in the coastal area of east Malaysia, to prove that there are major differences in space awareness and manipulation in the traditional culture as opposed to the cultures from which current urban design in Malaysia is derived from. This difference is most distinct in the concept of information space and subtleness in identity, two elements which this paper will suggest to be part of the factors needed to design communities based on the traditional experience of space. -Authors
