Perkeliling Flats are notoriously famous for the Death of Modern Architecture. One attempt to revitalize the poor conditions of multiple storey living is to intervene with posh communal facilities befitting the middle income lifestyle. The attempt is noble but the execution is weak. Instead of the prime colored organic architecture with Andy Warhol pop culture infusion it is horribly rendered with another modern cold rigid structure almost of a memorial tablet feels. Such represents the failure of the actor to understand the contention of the issue – Post Modernism.
Madrasah is equivalent to Islamic Education Facilities. What is to be understood from here is the infusion of Islamic lifestyle to education. That is the socio-cultural aspect. The model of production here takes the model of Al-Hambra into load stock and barrel, almost signifying the death of Architecture at large for this Institute of Higher Learnings. There is absolutely lack to exploration and creativity. The program lacked the fundamental into exploration of Educational Spaces, Social interaction Spaces and Communal Spaces. Instead it address the Posh Lifestyle Exclusive Club for the Sheiks to mingle in front of swimming pool supposing filled by skimpy swimmers with the rear wings accommodating the Madrasah proper and a puny Library as the connecting space between the Club and the Madrasah. There is really no other word befitting this attempt – A Joke!
