In the last four decades, a conscious appreciation of architectural conservation
has been established in Malaysia. This book provides a framework for the
history and development of the architectural conservation movement in
Malaysia. It attempts to give a chronological account of the development and
origins of Malaysian architectural conservation efforts, with particular
reference to the role of the late Tan Sri Mubin Sheppard, catalyst and leading
promoter of conservation activities. Thus, Sheppard’s contribution to the
fledgling heritage conservation movement is examined against the
background of the establishment and involvement of government agencies,
primarily the Museums Department under the British Empire till the
newly-implemented National Heritage Act 2005.
