Xeem is currently writing a thesis that aims to critique architectural education using anthropological methods to explore how architects sense and experience the Kuala Lumpur City in comparison to the ways people of the city sense and experience it. Her study acknowledges architects as a mediator in the cultural politics of space but also explores the phenomena of exclusivity and detachment that is evident in Kuala Lumpur architects even when they actively involve themselves with the urban concerns and discourses as well as in their everyday encounters of urban lived experiences.
