The paper focuses on the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of mothers who suffer from postpartum depression upon delivering their babies. The research has two (2) objectives: to evaluate the appropriate spatial requirement for postpartum confinement and design a Recovery Centre with an effective healing environment for postpartum women with depression. The table-research method to evaluate precedent studies of the same building typology was adopted to generate a comprehensive schedule of accommodation for the planned facility's spatial requirement and the criteria of a healing environment for women with postpartum depression. The research outcome is an architectural design facility proposed as a Recovery Centre for Women with Postpartum Depression. The project would benefit postpartum women by providing an appropriate healing environment in the new architectural design facility.</p> Fadzidah Abdullah Copyright (c) 2021 2021-06-25 2021-06-25 3 1 EXPLORATORIUM: AN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROJECT TO SAFEGUARD SARAWAK RAINFOREST AS THE NATIONAL NATURAL HERITAGE https://journals.iium.edu.my/kaed/index.php/dij/article/view/640 <p>This research explores the potential of architectural design solution to safeguard Sarawak Rainforest as the National Natural Heritage. Forest plays a significant role in maintaining the balance cycle of the global ecosystem. The rainforest in Malaysia has a rich biodiversity, but it is now in danger of disappearing due to excessive deforestation. The proposed architectural solution comes in the form of an “Exploratorium,” an architectural project integrated with a rainforest research centre. This proposed architectural solution will enable the general public to learn and understand the significance of preserving the rainforest by encouraging them to experience the tropical rainforest ecosystem. The proposed Exploratorium will have facilities, such as interactive galleries, series of forest discovery spaces, treehouses, travel pods, and watchtowers. Indeed, designing the Exploratorium reconnects the division between<br>humans and nature and responds to the call of SDG16, which is to protect, restore, and promote sustainableuse of terrestrial ecosystems.</p> Fadzidah Abdullah Copyright (c) 2021 2021-06-25 2021-06-25 3 1 LIPAT - A COMPACT BEDROOM FURNITURE FOR TENANTS IN MALAYSIA https://journals.iium.edu.my/kaed/index.php/dij/article/view/641 <p>Among the challenges faced by renting tenants in Malaysia is having to move heavy furniture at the end of the rental period, from one house to another. Easy-to-handle furniture is needed in the assembling and reassembling activity during the moving in and out of the house. This research aims to develop compact bedroom furniture for tenants in Malaysia. There are two (2) main objectives for this study which are; 1) to identify the existing design elements of bedroom furniture and 2) to determine the user design preferences for compact bedroom furniture. Two (2) data collection methods were used: a line-up study and a survey questionnaire. From the analysis, it is found that portable concept furniture can help to ease the issue faced by the tenant during their moving in and out. A simple mechanism such as slotting and folding a minimalist style of nomad furniture is most appropriate. Wood is widely used for many compact furniture because of its durability and portability concept. The furniture needs to comply with the Malaysian population's anthropometric data and should also be affordable. More studies and ideas for nomad furniture are required not only for commercialisation but also for ease of people's lifestyle.&nbsp;</p> Julaila Abdul Rahman Copyright (c) 2021 2021-06-25 2021-06-25 3 1 COMMUNAL LANDSCAPE DESIGN: IMPLEMENTATION AT LOW-COST FLAT IN SELAYANG, SELANGOR https://journals.iium.edu.my/kaed/index.php/dij/article/view/642 <p>This paper presents the process of implementing a communal landscape design project for a low-cost flat in Selangor. The project aimed to rejuvenate the existing communal area into a unique outdoor landscape space that is vibrant in use, comfortable and beautiful. There are five main phases in the process of implementing the project: (1) planning and site selection, (2) site inventory and analysis, (3) design proposal, (4) presentation of project to the client and the residents’ management body (JMB), and (5) implementation of the project on-site. The project involved the cooperation of various groups, including the client, local authority, the students from the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture programme and ARCLA Society, the academic staff of IIUM, and Selayang Mulia flat residents at Batu Caves. As part of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to encourage academic staff and students to be engaged in a community project, this communal landscape project has promoted a sense of place to the residents.</p> Mazlina Mansor Copyright (c) 2021 2021-06-25 2021-06-25 3 1 THE SEA VAULT : OFFSHORE ECOTOURISM AQUACULTURE CENTRE AT PULAU BESAR, JOHOR DARUL TAKZIM https://journals.iium.edu.my/kaed/index.php/dij/article/view/643 <p>Malaysia is one of the major fish consumers globally, with 56.5 kg of fish consumed per person each year, which is higher than the world average fish consumption. High fish consumption and sea pollution affected the number of captured fisheries. Malaysia, at this point, must not rely on captured fisheries as the primary seafood resources. Hence aquaculture is seen as the most suitable way to overcome the issue. However, land aquaculture produced freshwater pollution and resulted in low-quality fisheries. Therefore, this<br>research proposes a sustainable offshore aquaculture centre design in Malaysia to reduce water pollution and increase marine fish produce. The first objective of the research is to identify the type of marine fishes that can increase other marine fish population. The second objective is to determine sustainable aquaculture practices. The third objective is to determine the appropriate research facilities for breeding and production. The whole study was at Pulau Besar, Johor. The research methodology adopted is qualitative<br>research through case studies, interviews, and structured observation. The first finding is that parrotfish identified as important species for breeding to balance the marine ecosystem. The second finding had identified sustainable aquaculture practices such as cage angling, fish breading in its natural habitat, use of natural food for fish feeding. The third finding identified is marine research laboratories like hatchery, experiment, parrotfish sanctuary, which can increase marine fish production.</p> Zeenat Begam Yusof Copyright (c) 2021 2021-06-25 2021-06-25 3 1 APPROACHING BEHAVIOUR TREATMENT ON A PLAYSET FURNITURE https://journals.iium.edu.my/kaed/index.php/dij/article/view/644 <p>Good Dino is a concept that develops playset furniture to functions as educational equipment with storages, playground, and space decoration. The concept was approached through behaviour control to suggest kids keeping their things (like toys and equipment) and playing the slide as a reward. The Dino approach is recognised as a behavioural treatment for children who may have problems with attention span, following instruction, making careless mistakes, inattentive and hyperactive. Emotional Design concept from Interaction Design was adapted to conceptualise the approach. Referring to Don Norman’s emotional design concept, there is a need to have a good interaction between human and product. Three levels of Emotional Design by Don Norman are i) Visceral, ii) Behavioural, and iii) Reflective. This paper describes each level of the design concept that demonstrates the interaction between human and product.&nbsp;</p> Raja Intan Suhaylah Copyright (c) 2021 2021-06-25 2021-06-25 3 1 HIGH IMPACT PROJECTS OF STATE STRUCTURE PLAN OF NEGERI SEMBILAN2045– TOWARDS BALANCED AND SUSTAINED ECONOMIC GROWTH https://journals.iium.edu.my/kaed/index.php/dij/article/view/645 <p>This article is a review of Negeri Sembilan Draft State Structure Plan 2045.
