Abstract

The issue of strained race relation in this country has surfaced again. If there is one glaring ‘failure’ of this coalition government is that this relationship is even worse that before. Yes, we have a peaceful country, but underneath this peace lies a boiling mass of fear and hatred that will hinder the best Malaysians to contribute toward the well being of this country. I personally find that the economic disparity is much closer and its bridging is simply a matter of a few more years and that is a success story for the coalition government. But serious issues of education philosophy in all levels threaten to strike at the very heart of racial harmony. I wish to expound on one aspect which has been hidden all this while and this aspect is also something which I suspect is adding the rift between our races. It is in the way we design our buildings and plan our housing. I maintain that architectural design and housing planning worsen ethnic relation in this country. We must revamp our thinking about design and planning principles if we are to get back on track towards a nation of true peace and harmony.
