Gallery: Awesome Worm-Like Pod Pavilion in Kuala Lumpur is Inspired by ...

Just west of Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya is being developed at breakneck pace

The Pod’s unique structure is achieved with tubular steel members and which were then wrapped in a reflective aluminum shell. This not only refracts excess sunlight, but also changes the building’s exterior color depending on the time of day. Inside there are two different wings – a section for offices and another that acts as a showroom.

This interior space is flooded with daylight thanks to strategically placed windows. And greenery placed around the building’s perimeter has a favorable affect on the overall bio-climate. Futuristic in design and scope, every effort has been made to give this project a sustainable edge, which could help to steer how this region’s urban development unfolds.
