2018 – Bandar Tun Razak, Cheras
Sports & Cultures
The overall site was designed to be a sports-city as part of the new Kuala Lumpur Masterplan. The football stadium has begun construction in the mid of 2015 and is aiming for handover on 31 July 2017.
The scope of works in the stadium phase consists of upgrading existing spectators seating areas and new built works on the main entrance end of the building. The field has been cleared up and just went through its first phase of fertilization.
A series of triangulated structures, placed at the main entrance of this football stadium, provides a feeling of grandure as one enters the space.
It definitely gives visitors a sense of certainty of an important space – in this case a main entrance – an emphasis most stadiums require, looking at the number of entry points they have and the 15,000 spectator capacity.
Besides just holding up the roof, this 3 dimensional feature that is fabricated out of 4mm thick folded aluminum sheet, overhangs above the grand lobby making it visible even from the field. The large V openings from its triangulation provides sufficient air circulation into the facilities that are located beyond the walls it is adjacent to, keeping all spaces visited, cool and airy.
