Putrajaya Convention Centre
Putra Jaya, Malaysia
The convention centre is a focal point of Malaysia's new administrative capital. Its seven levels provide a plenary hall for 3'000, a banqueting hall for 3'500 and two large conference halls (capacity 2'000), as well as mini halls, meeting rooms, suites, galleries and supporting services - yet its footprint occupies only three acres of its 51-acre site, leaving the remainder for use as a public park. To achieve this, more than 60 per cent of the spaces are submerged below ground. The glazed walls of the above-ground structure are sloped and louvered to prevent direct solar gain; the membrane roof is made of Sanarfil.
