Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to identify the trends in the design of the highest administrative building in Malaysia by looking at the architectural style of major eras of the country that acts as future design precedent. Administrative architecture is seen not just as a place to administer the country, but also a place of identity, especially in the portrayal of a country’s social, economic and political stature. Documentation of architecture styles were done by past scholars (Mohidin et al., 2012), however, none discussed on how the data could benefit future trends in the design of future administrative architecture of the country as building new administrative utopia is an unending phenomenon as the era evolves. As outlined by Yin (2014) the study uses multiple case studies as a method of data collection. As a result, the study aims to bridge the gap between the architectural style and the possible factors influencing the conception of the style. Through this, it is hoped that future administrative architecture style will reflect better design at the expense of true national identity.
