    3. BIOGRAPHY Dr. Ken Yeang is the world's leadingarchitect in ecological and passive low energy design. He has delivered over 200 built projects and his 'bioclimatic' towershave had an impact around the world, fusing high-tech and organic principles. He is a member of the RIBA and is registered with ARB. Over his 35 years of professional practice, he has seen to completion over a hundred projects on site, including having designed over 50 skyscrapers.

    4. LIFE AND CAREER • Dr. Ken Yeang is a Malaysian architect and ecologist whose planning and designs have had the constancy of the theoretical framework of ecological, bioclimatic and energy efficiency for almost 40 years.Beginning his architectural practice in l974, • Yeang continues his research and designs to further this theory for architecture around the world. In addition to a fulltime practice that encompasses large scale projects, skyscrapers, and ecomasterplanning, Yeang has been a prolific writer of books about ecodesign and a visiting scholar at universities in Australia, China, Malaysia, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Yeang attended Cheltenham College in Gloucestershire, England, received his first degree in architecture from the Architectural Association in London, and received a PhD in ecological design from Cambridge University.

    5. His dissertation was entitled, "A Theoretical Framework for the Ecological Design and Planning of the Built Environment". As a principal in T. R. Hamzah and Yeang in Kuala Llumpur, Malaysia, since 1975, he was instrumental in developing the design of low energy skyscrapers. • As a result of his energy conserving innovations, Yeang has designed skyscrapers in London, Singapore, Kuwait, Canada, China, Turkey, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan. The firm has also designed master plans for both sites and multi-building complexes in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Taiwan, and China.In 2005 Yeang became a director of the old and venerable English firm of Llewelyn Davies Yeang. It is a multidisciplinary firm of urban designers, architects, and landscape architects with headquarters in London. The combined firms of Llewelyn Davies Yeang and T. R. Hamzah and Yeang have offices in London, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Shenzen, and Sydney

    6. Ken recognized 40 years ago that world population, industrialization, and technology would continue to increase, and the resulting global warming and increased contamination of the environment would adversely affect the natural balance of biodiversity and ecosystems. His architecture projects all represent his constant pursuit of ecodesign. Yeang’s buildings feature low energy usage, eco-land bridges, vertical landscaping, ecocells, light shelves, light pipes, sky courts, stepped terraces, vertical linked enclosed atria, bioswales, and deep green architecture. They are designed to minimize disruptions with the adjoining ecosystems and to maintain the sensitive ecobalance.

    7. BOOKS by KEN YEANG The green skyscraper: the basis for designing sustainable intensive building Reinventing the skyscraper: A Vertical Theory of Urban Design Eco skyscraper

    8. The mutiara master plan Ecodesign: A Manual for Ecological Design Tropical Urban Regionalism: Building in a South-East Asian City

    9. HONORS and EXHIBITIONS There have been 18 exhibitions of Yeang’s bioclimatic works, from Tokyo to Berlin to New York, London, Chicago, Washington, DC, and Rotterdam dating from l985 through 2008. Yeang and his ecodesigns have been featured in a number of special broadcasts, including BBC television and radio, NHK (Japan) and Asia Discovery Channel, and Public Broadcasting System’s design=e2 in which he was specifically identified as one of three architects in the world who have the greatest influence on ecodesign. Yeang began garnering awards for his designs in l989, and since then he has been recognized for his extraordinary designs with over 35 awards, including the Aga Khan Award for Architecture for his Menara Mesiniaga. In 2003 Yeang was awarded the Government of Malaysia’s Danjah Mulia Pangkuan Negen (DMPN) that carries with the official title of Dato.
