International Excursion for Architects & Engineers to Southeast Asia

International Excursion - Building for Hot & Humid Climates

Kuala Lumpur - Melaka - Singapur
16.09.2014 - 20.09.2014
With this exclusive trip to Malaysia & Singapore from 16th to 20th September 2014 you will experience the latest developments in context-sensitive and sustainable architecture for hot & humid climates.

Southeast Asia is experiencing a strong economic recovery and a corresponding development of the property market. The combined requirements of modern architecture, sustainability, and the hot-humid climate of the tropics call for an alternative design strategy to the common practice of air-conditioned glass buildings of the past decades. The five-day excursion Building for the Hot & Humid from 16-20th September 2014 will explore this alternative strategy in Kuala Lumpur, Melaka and Singapore.


• Learn to implement the key principles for designing for hot & humid climates
• Visit a wide range of innovative and sustainable architecture projects
• Encounter leading architects and engineers from Europe and Southeast Asia.


The international excursion is led by Dr. Wolfgang Kessling (TRANSSOLAR) and DI Gregers Reimann (IEN) and accompanied by Richard Hassell (WOHA Architects), Nirmal Kishnani (National University of Singapore) and Tobias Baur (Atelier Dreiseitl).
