DATUM:KL, which started in 2003, will now be the name of an exciting and ambitious new PAM initiative, the 2011 Kuala Lumpur Architecture Festival. Having grown over the years and now in its ninth year, Datum:KL is restructured and up-cycled as a month long multi-programme platform to be held throughout July 2011.
The Festival aims to bring forth wider cultural aspects of the discipline onto the public domain and to invigorate the city of Kuala Lumpur into new and purposeful dialogues. For the month of July, Datum:KL will frame a moment of architectural intensity, propositions and conversations. A comprehensive series of conferences, exhibitions, workshops, forums, events, etc., has been planned with your participation in mind.
Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair will be speaking on July 2nd.
