PINGHUB is pleased to anouce that The Malaysian Academy of Han Studies has opened in Malaysia. A new school in that aims to build and function as a self-sustaining community. Parents, teachers, staff and children will all live together, learning and teaching with the academy on a fully charitable and donated site.
The heart of the school’s curriculum and function lie in the core principles of Confucianism, Taoism, and ultimately Buddhism. The form of the academy is inspired by the Tulou Clusters in southern China and creates an inclusive village atmosphere, whilst promoting circulation of people, energy and ideas alongside the ventilation and light that flows through the buildings louvred walls.
Blending a Malaysian roof vernacular with an inverted Chinese historical community architecture, the centre is a contemporary fusion of tradition and new ideas.
We have worked with the driving force behind this project and its design the Masters of Han Studies in previous exhibitions, notably the 360 Degree Peace and Harmony exhibition tour in 2015
