Malaysia Design Archive is a space to trace and document Malaysian ‘endangered’ design & visual legacy, to preserve our historical past, as well as to create a resource of Malaysian design work. This is an on-going archival project and hopefully through this, we are able to build up a valuable and useful design / visual resource. If you’d like to contribute to the project, please write to us for more info.
