Preserving the Legacy of SMK Convent Bukit Nanas

Preserving the Legacy of SMK Convent Bukit Nanas

The iconic SMK Convent Bukit Nanas made the headlines recently after it was reported that the Federal Territories Land and Mines Department had decided not to renew the school’s land lease. This led to an outcry, as the people were worried that the school might be demolished, or relocated, destroying its legacy in Bukit Nanas, and Kuala Lumpur forever. We speak to Shuhana Shamsuddin, President of Pereka Bandar, or Malaysian Urban Design Association to unpack the story. Shuhana was involved in the drafting of the KL Heritage Trail Master Plan that was presented to DBKL, and in the masterplan, they included Convent Bukit Nanas as part of the trail.

Do take note that this interview was conducted prior to the latest news that the government has now renewed the land lease for another 60 years.
