Ken Yeang on Day 3

Ken Yeang, eco-architect, Malaysia, England

Ken Yeang is director of Llewelyn Davies Yeang, a multidisciplinary firm of Urban designers, Architects and Landscape Architects. Yeang is known for pioneering the passive low-energy design of skyscrapers, what he has called “bioclimatic” design. Yeang’s 1992 Menara Mesiniaga building in Subang Jaya Selangor, Malaysia outlines his bioclimatic techniques, including daring vertical landscaping, external louvers to reduce solar heat gain, extensive natural ventilation and lighting, and an active Intelligent Building system for automated energy savings. His concentration on energy conservation and environmental impact is a radical departure from mainstream architecture’s view of the profession as more strictly an art form.
