Architect, Founder
RDA Harris Design Group

Mr. Harris won the Colombo Plan Scholarship to study in Australia in 1975. After 10 years, he returned to Malaysia to serve the country followed by a six year stint in Brunei. In 1992, he was appointed as Principal Architect of KLCC and the Architect-of-Record for Petronas Twin Towers, the world’s tallest (twin) building. Armed with these experiences, Mr. Harris established RDA-Harris Architects in 1995, with the objective to provide world-class architectural and urban design services. Subsequently this merged into RDA-Harris Design Group, a leading design firm in the region.

He travels extensively in pursuit of greater knowledge in architecture and design. As an educationist, he has lectured in many design schools.

Paris 2000, ARCASIA Gold Medal, Macau 2003, PAM Gold Medal, Kuala Lumpur 2002 and in 2005 for a competition in Abu Dhabi.
