BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (HONOURS) IN ARCHITECTURE
THEORIES OF ARCHITECTURE AND URBANISM (ARC61303/ARC2224)
SYNOPSIS: REACTION PAPER (AUGUST 2016) [10 MARKS]
NAME: SIEW JOHN LOONG ID: 0315871
LECTURER: MR NAZMI TUTORIAL TIME: 4-6PM
SYNOPSIS NO: 4 READER TITLE: TOWARDS A CRITICAL REGIONALISIM
AUTHOR: KENNETH FRAMPTON
Critical regionalism is to provide a self identity to the building. It does not accept non-
contextual ornamentations and it purposes to balance the revival of old that was part of
the building in the past and how the community is affected by it. Critical regionalism is an
optimization of earth equipment and layout of the building and create placelessness by
taking consideration about the characteristic of the land culture. For me, I think that
building design should always be related to the origin or contextual element of the building
rather than having unnecesssary or unrelated beautiful design.
Site climate like wind path and sun path can also directly affect the building design.
Therefore, opening is required in a building on the site to allow these features to be taken
place. For example, opening like window can be important as it can show the sense of
regional with the wall placement. The climate can both affect the placement of the
window and building form. Besides wind path, the sun path which can allow light
penetration into the building will also create a sense of poetic to the building. Needless to
say, every building contains this features but not every building is having the same sense of
poetic created by this natural lighting. This provides a critical regionalism to the building as
each building will have its very own identity by having different openings and creating
different poetic sense due to the site context. For the site in Petaling Street, it seems like
every building is having the same opening but actually, I think it is not. For example, A
kopitiam restaurant will be having large openings than the modern café shop as that is
their ways of culture of welcoming people into the building.
At the same time, the tactile surface of a building can create a mutual understanding
between the architect and the user due to the tactile tectonic. In the text, Kenneth
Frampton mentions that the tactile tectonic of materials like wood, brick and so on can
affect how people perceive and enter to a building. I strongly agree because it is a very
direct impact between the tactile tectonic and the people. Local materials can strongly
bring out the identity of certain building in certain area without the need to imitate other
building design. It makes people to understand more and easily about the building and
therefore, critical regionalism strikes in. In Petaling Street, materials like concreate and
cement becomes the main feature of the old buildings there as they were all built that way
in the old days, except for those newly open shop. It brings out the identity of the building
of the area and people can perceive easily that those are coming from the very old days.
As a conclusion, again, I agree that the human perception towards a regional feeling is
determined and affected by critical regionalism. It is a simple way of presenting the
identity of its very own.

Besides wind path, the sun path which can allow light penetration into the building will also create a sense of poetic to the building. Needless to say, every building contains this features but not every building is having the same sense of poetic created by this natural lighting. This provides a critical regionalism to the building as each building will have its very own identity by having different openings and creating different poetic sense due to the site context. For the site in Petaling Street, it seems like every building is having the same opening but actually, I think it is not. For example, A kopitiam restaurant will be having large openings than the modern café shop as that is their ways of culture of welcoming people into the building. At the same time, the tactile surface of a building can create a mutual understanding between the architect and the user due to the tactile tectonic. In the text, Kenneth Frampton mentions that the tactile tectonic of materials like wood, brick and so on can affect how people perceive and enter to a building. I strongly agree because it is a very direct impact between the tactile tectonic and the people. Local materials can strongly bring out the identity of certain building in certain area without the need to imitate other building design. It makes people to understand more and easily about the building and therefore, critical regionalism strikes in. In Petaling Street, materials like concreate and cement becomes the main feature of the old buildings there as they were all built that way in the old days, except for those newly open shop. It brings out the identity of the building of the area and people can perceive easily that those are coming from the very old days. As a conclusion, again, I agree that the human perception towards a regional feeling is determined and affected by critical regionalism. It is a simple way of presenting the identity of its very own.
