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.

About Making

We are excited to start working on ‘About Making: Exploring building craft and its social processes’ – a project supported by @my_british (Connections Through Culture Grant 2021) 

A collaboration between @eleenajamilarchitect (Malaysia), Dr Stephen Knott, Abbe Fletcher & Dr Christoph Lueder (UK), different aspects of ‘making’ in art and architecture will be explored while carrying forward the materials and processes of traditional craft in a cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary mix.
