Perdana Canopy

Kuala Lumpur

Perdana Canopy is devised with a high consideration of context. The form of the roof emulates fluidity and the organic nature of the lake and its surrounding greeneries. The structure seeks to provide shelter inconspicuously by mimicking lush tall trees while at the same time acting as a landmark with its spacetransforming functionality and dominant placement. The invaluable natural reserve of Lake Garden will not be overshadowed by this new addition, it adopts camouflage quality by replicating trees to its basic component of trunks, branches and foliage. Physical contact with ground space is minimised to reduce obstruction of nature while allowing optimum use of the ground area by creating a flexible space that can hold various levels of events and are able to accommodate high volume of crowds. The freestanding freeform shelter is one of its kind in the world and is Malaysias first singlelayered monocoque system structure.
