Abstract

Putrajaya is located about 25km from Kuala Lumpur and 20km from Kuala Lumpur International Airport Sepang in the south. Putrajaya was designated as the new administration seat of the Malaysian Government following the Government’s decision to relocate the federal administrative capital in June 1993 to decentralise and alleviate problem of congestion and high land value. The planning of Putrajaya city is planned to embrace two (2) main themes -- city in a garden and an intelligent city. It showcases a new approach adopted by Malaysian built environment professionals in building future cities. It incorporates innovative ideas of community building, townscape, transportation planning, urban ecology and adopting new technologies in city building.
