Abstract

Since Islam is the nation’s majority religion, the government of Malaysia strives to adopt Islamic values in its city environment. Yet, given Malaysia’s multi-racial and multi-religious lifestyle, how can an Islamic-based, built environment play a role? Have Islamic concepts been implemented correctly and appropriately in the construction of Malaysia’s cities? Therefore, the main purpose of this paper is to utilize a methodology meant to elicit the perceptions of experts--those who are related in the decision-making process of city development and design concepts including administrators, professionals, academicians and Islamic scholars-- on the meaning of an Islamic built environment in Malaysian cities. This ongoing research employs descriptive and survey-based research designs rooted in qualitative and quantitative research paradigms. The research method implemented is a Delphi method that uses structured and semi-structured interviews for primary data collection to achieve two objectives: (1) to define the perceptions of experts from a variety of races and religions on the subject of Islamic built environments in order to ensure the appropriate implementation of the concept in Malaysian contexts, and (2) to evaluate and analyze the findings with regard to the degree to which the study area in Putrajaya are truly Islamic cities and are compatible with the criteria associated with an Islamic built environment in Malaysia. This study anticipates that characteristics of an Islamic built environment based on the input of experts and suggestions regarding how professionals can use these perceptions as guidance to concretely act on the design process.
