3RD WORLD AESTHETICS////////////////// NG SEKSAN///////////////////


Ng Sek San is a well-known landscape architect based in Kuala Lumpur with a profound respect for nature, the environment and a belief in committing to making works that reflect an egalitarian lifestyle, simple, affordable and not overtly finished.
He eschews the principle of treading the land lightly as possible, being irreverent to manmade rules and conventions, and advocates extreme restraint in design.

In the proposed fragment he articulates the concept of ‘3rd world aesthetics’, an alternative understanding of spaces which is more a philosophy of life rather than a formal identity.
