CROSS BORDER ARCHITECTURE
Cross border architecture have actually been around for a quite a while, although limited to invitation to design a building in a particular country or through wordwide competition.
Today, cross-border architectural practises have become more common. Necessitating the need to apply some guidelines to control them. In the ASEAN region, these guidelines are arrange in the ASEAN MRA or ASEAN Mutual Recognition Arrangement on Architectural Services.
How do ASEAN architects respond to deal with this new regulsation ? Will ASEAN MRA become a benefit or threat to these architects ?
Archinesia interviewed a number of eminent architectural practitioners, heads of architects associations, architecture academics from Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand to give their views, responses, and arguments regarding cross-border architecture issue.
We also interviewed several architects from other region (Europe) to enrich this cover story.
