Tukang Film

As part of our ‘About Making’ project, we produced a short film in collaboration with GarisPXL.Co, titled ‘Tukang‘ where three craftsmen – Adiguru Muhaimin Hasbollah, Elias Robani and Isma Sazali Rosti – talk about the process of building the traditional Malay timber house in Malaysia. These vernacular houses are a sophisticated form of rural domestic architecture consisting of rectangular volumes raised on stilts put together using an interlocking joinery technique known as tanggam.
