Petaling Jaya Trade Centre@Kuala Lumpur

PJ Trade Centre is one of the largest office developments in the country, with a net area of 810,000 square feet spread out over its four towers.The development concept is based on a Malaysian paradigm - it is of its time, culture, climate and context. It begins with the understanding that many office buildings in the country are unsuited for our environment, being based on a western model to fit temperate climates and western contexts.
It is inspired by the knit between Malaysian natural history and its ethnology - as seen in weavings of batik, kain songket, pelekat and tenun - and this is expressed by a gentle wrapping of the building in a breathing skin that is like a pattern cloth, at a scale of 20 storeys.
