RECLAIM THE CHARACTER OF OUR CITIES
The Pertubuhan Rekabentuk Bandar Malaysia (PEREKABANDAR) or the Malaysian Urban Design Association was registered as an NGO or an interest group society with the mission of being the voice that champion for good urban design practice in the country. Urban design is a field of expertise which bridges the gap between Architecture and Town Planning and is not related to a profession. Formal training in Urban Design at post graduate levels will give an added value to existing professionals in the built environment.
Expertise in Urban Design does enhance the skills of the existing professionals in the built environment to design better urban spaces and city form. As a non professional body, we see our role as similar to the Urban Design Group in the UK or Urban Design Alliance of Australia. PEREKABANDAR's role is to provide a platform for intellectual discourse, training and source of information with regards to urban design in this country in order to improve the quality of design of our cities.
