Layered City Masterplan
Kepong, Kuala Lumpur
Layered City is a proposal to transform Kepong’s 52-acre dumping ground as a new hub of urban lifestyle. As the name suggests, the scheme applies the urban strategy of overlapping various programmes to create a multi-use development with holistic integration of residential, public, community and commercial zones. Amongst these programmes is the central urban park which functions as a nucleus to bind all components together and making the masterplan a complete scheme. Contrary to a tabula rasa, reference was made from the existing platforms of the land formed by the years of waste dumping.
