Putrajaya has been developed as the new center for government since its functional move from the former capital Kuala Lumpur. The city planning is very representative of the nation’s authority and symbolic in nature with a very elaborate lighting plan in progress.
This main road is a prime example of the sense of authority this city invokes. Its symmetrical design and point of view are very important aspects. The lighting methods and luminance levels are also very detailed and divided by function.
View of the office of the Prime Minister and Putra Mosque in the center of Putrajaya. The lighting for this Islamic style of architecture reflects in the water and tints it blue for a fantasy like nightscape.
The center of Putrajaya is built around a man-made lake, making bridges an integrate part of city life. Many unique bridge designs are part of this urban landscape.
