AB Hubback exhibition
FMSR Central Offices 1905 by Abey Zoul

Organised by Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM) and Department of Museums Malaysia (JMM), this exhibition showcases the life and 25 architectural works of Brigadier General Arthur Benison Hubback (1871-1948), who held the position of Government Architect of the Federated Malay States back in the early 20th century. Highlights include the Ipoh Railway Station & Hotel, Malay College Kuala Kangsar, Carcosa, Kuala Lumpur Railway Station & Hotel, Ubudiah Mosque and the Old Kuala Lumpur Supreme Court. The main feature, however, is AB Hubback’s personal 100-year-old painting of the Jamek Mosque, which was recently donated by his grandson, Dr Peter Barbor to the Malaysian Institute of Architects.
