Magazine Description

In this issue

This issue marks our entry into the year 2016 which promises to be ‘challenging’. World Bank has announced that weak growth inemerging markets will weigh on global performance. For us in publishing, work goes on as we try to bring you more industry news from around the region, if not the world. Asia is still a dynamic powerhouse generating work for architects and builders from around the globe. Some of the world’s tallest buildings are already in this part of the region, Shanghai Tower (pg 10) being one of them. Also in this issue, we feature the University College of Technology Sarawak (pg 6), Borneo Convention Centre (pg 12) and Paramount Utropolis, Selangor (pg 14). In our Special Feature section, we talked to AHI Roofing to get a better understanding of their Decra stone-coated metal roof times (pg 18); while WTW gave us their views on the likely scenario for the property market in 2016 (pg 22). Not all sectors are slowing down as we found out—the mining machinery suppliers are optimistic about the future (pg 24). In our News & Events section, we bring you a round-up on the happenings within the industry, including a highlight of an architect’s concept on eco-design (pg 26). In our Design Feature section, we showcase a casino in Canada that underwent an invigorating makeover (pg 56); an apartment in London that used to be a car showroom (pg 58); a re-designed Greek-Mediterranean restaurant in Montreal (pg 60); an old country house converted into a modern living space (pg 62); and an apartment in Lebanon that exudes luxury (pg 64). Meanwhile, if you have suggestions to offer, projects to highlight or events that you would like us to cover, please drop us a note. Happy reading! ERIC TAN, Editor
