Dato’ Baharuddin Awarded PAM Gold Medal Award

KUALA LUMPUR, 25 April 2009 – Thinkscape Team3 chairman & co-founder, Dato’ Ar (Dr) Hj Baharuddin Abu Kassim, was conferred Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM) Gold Medal Award today at a special ceremony in one of his very own designs – the iconic National Mosque in the capital city.

The Gold Medal Award is the industry’s highest honour in the country, and Baharuddin is the fifth selected recipient in the history of this prestigious award.

Baharuddin, known for progressive designs inspired by local heritage, was recognised for his contribution to the profession, the society, and outstanding achievements. His work includes some of the most recognisable landmarks and towers in Malaysia.

At the same event, Baharuddin announced the merging of his 42-year private practice into the Thinkscape Group – and the official establishment of Thinkscape Team3 under the group.

He sees the setup of Thinkscape Team3 as his latest effort to shift the architectural practice to an innovative new working model – by leveraging on cross-disciplinary partnership of ideas to optimise impact and effectiveness.

“Architects of the future should be encouraged to form groups of multi-level practices. For many years, architects were regarded as the leaders of the building industry. Why don’t we unite to restore the integrity and stature that this profession so rightly deserves… It is for this exact reason that I have offered my own small contribution in the form of Thinkscape Team3, which would bring architecture into the 21st century by merging together cutting-edge brand design thinking, digital media and traditional architectural practices,” said Dato’ Baharuddin.
