WHAT’S NEXT FOR BRICKFIELDS

Our recently concluded THIS KUL CITY: DISCOVER BRICKFIELDS walk explored the diverse religious, ethnic, social, cultural and educational institutions this historical old neighbourhood had to offer.

Since the early 2000s, the face of Brickfields has become increasingly changed. The development of KL Sentral as a futuristic self-contained city within what was originally the railway yard, has begun to dramatically encroach and overwhelm the scale and character of this neighbourhood. However, for the present, its traditional spaces and activities continue, but whether it will wholly embrace the futuristic trajectory set by KL Sentral or hang onto its diverse cultural identity remains to be seen.
