  1. 1. Culture and Civilization Project 3: “Art and pattern of British Colonial Building” NAME : Yuan KhaiShien STUDENT ID :0314818 COURSE : Foundation in Natural and Built Environment April Intake 2013 SUBJECT : Culture and Civilization (FDES 0815) LECTURER : NormahSulaiman .DelliyaMohd.Zain
  2. 2. “Art and pattern of British Colonial Building” Assignment Brief
  3. 3. Introduction In this assignment, we are require to do a literature research on places of interest of your site visit. From the literature review, we are to study the theme given and its connection between the historical, architectural and social aspects of the place. We have to document the research that we have done in an A5 small booklet base on our theme and show it by graphical way. Concept & Theme Theme- Architecture of British Colonial building Concept – pattern and texture of British Colonial building Pattern and texture is an artistic or decorative design. Each type of building has their own awesome pattern and texture design no matter it is old stylish house, modern house and so on. But normally this type of pattern doesn’t notice much by people nowadays because people nowadays probably only spend much of their time on online social networking service such as Facebook, Twitter and others. So this book is basically showing people about British Colonial building’s special patterns and textures.
  4. 4. Location Place Choosen – Kuala Lumpur Kuala Lumpur is the capital city in Malaysia, somehow it has also many unforgettable history. The reason why I choose Kuala Lumpur is because it is one of the famous place that has occupied by British in the olden century. Because of this Kuala Lumpur has plenty of British heritage buildings which have wonderful texture and beautiful pattern but they are unnoticed by people nowadays.
  5. 5. Mapping Kuala Lumpur Railway Station This is the map for Kuala Lumpur Railway Station. It place at Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin however the building Keretaapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) Berhad is place opposite this building which is Keretaapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) Berhad Sultan Abdul Samad Building
  6. 6. This is the map for Sultan Abdul Samad Building. It place at JalanTunperak which opposite Merdeka Square.
  7. 7. The Building that I have choose – 1) Sultan Abdul Samad Building The Sultan Abdul Samad Building is located in front of the DataranMerdeka (Independence Square) and the Royal Selangor Club, by Jalan Raja in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The structure takes its name from Sultan Abdul Samad, the reigning sultan of Selangor at the time when construction began. It was designed by A.C. Norman and built in 1894-1897 to house several important government departments during the British administration. A.C. Norman spent time in Africa and saw Muslim mosques in India which led him to useMughal architecture in the building's design.The 41-meter tower chimed for the first time to coincide with Queen Victoria’s Jubilee Parade in 1897 and has chimed since.The building, simply known as Government Offices in early Kuala Lumpur maps, housed the Federal Secretariat of the then-Federated Malay States which was formed in 1896.
  8. 8. 2) Kuala Lumpur Railway Station Berhad Formerly known as the Malayan Railway Administration, it later became known as KTMB, or Keretapi Tanah MelayuBerhad. The railway system dates back to the British colonial era, when it was first built to transport tin. Fares were generally reasonable, but the low speed of the intercity trains did not make them competitive with other modes of transportation. The building was also designed by A.B Hubback, the same architect who designed the Old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station. It was completed in 1917, after works were halted during World War One. It also incorporates the Mughal style of architecture, just as the building on the opposite side of the road. The building suffered bombing in its North Wing during the Second World War, and in 1968, the second floor was gutted by fire. In 1983, the building was gazetted as a heritage site. 3) Old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station
  9. 9. Kuala Lumpur Railway Station is a railway station located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.It designed by Arthur Benison Hubback, a British Architectural Assistant to the Director of Public Works based on The "NeoMoorish/Mughal/Indo-Saracenic/Neo-Saracenic" style. This style was not uncommon at the time, such as Sultan Abdul Samad also build based on this design. This building completed in 1910to replace an older station on the same site, the station was Kuala Lumpur's railway hub in the city for the Federated Malay States Railways and Malayan Railway , before Kuala Lumpur Sentral assumed much of its role in 2001. The station is notable for its architecture, adopting a mixture of Eastern and Western designs.
  10. 10. The theme and my places “Pattern and texture of British Colonial Building” Why I do on pattern and texture? It is because the wonderful pattern and texture in these British Colonial Building has left out by people nowadays. These pattern and texture basically has their own meaning and clearly show the style of the connection of British Colonial and Muslim stylish. For example the different arches that I have seen through the journey when I doing this assignment has represent the pattern of British style. We can also get to know the lifestyle and behavior of them through these building by looking of their design. Besides, I try to concentrate on British Colonial building because British colonial buildings have their own different special style compare to building nowadays. In the other hand, many people who didn’t have went to England also can know the pattern of British stylish through this book. Basically I make this simple theme is because I hope the reader can easily understand what is bring out and showing in this book. So that reader won’t confuse when they are looking this graphical book and refuse to read at last.
