Kampar: UTAR Grand Hall Has A Cool Chinese Architecture

Kampar: UTAR Grand Hall Has A Cool Chinese Architecture – Visited UTAR (Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman) at Kampar a week ago and found out that there’s a cool building in the campus – the Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik Grand Hall. It has a super duper Chinese-orientated architecture design like those Chinese temple roof, red bricks, water features which makes you feel as if you are in China, minus the cold.

The grand hall that looks like a Chinese temple from far. LOL, that’s why most UTAR friends told me.
The street lamp, beautiful Chinese pattern.
Love red bricks a lot.
A bit of contemporary design here at the lobby.
Semi-circular rounder arch entrance to the hall.

This is something different and awesome when comparing to my school – Taylor’s University which has a modern minimalist design.

Check out the water features too. Must be something to do with feng shui, I guess.
Chinese words on the water.
Chinese word as sculpture.
There’s fishes in case you don’t know.

UTAR, a very famous university among the Chinese-educated group of people, and founded by the MCA (=.=), guess this explains the very-ching-chong-Chinese design of this building. Anyway, I kinda like things like this, at least it stand outs among the many universities in Malaysia. Which campus has special architecture design? Do share with me, down below. =D
