Descripció University of Technology Petronas:

Set in hilly and forested terrain 300 km north of Kuala Lumpur, the University of Technology Petronas responds both to the physical landscape and to the weather patterns of the Malay peninsula. In terms of scale, its radial geometry is more consistent with town planning than with conventional building.

A soaring, crescent-form roof supported by steel columns winds around the edge of the site, covering pedestrian routes and providing a defined, shaded zone for social interaction and circulation. To preserve the natural topography, the core academic buildings are wrapped around the base of a series of knolls; viewed from a distance, the university’s canopy elevation echoes the tree canopy of the densely forested site.

This is an exemplary use of a performance-based approach to architectural design that goes beyond the diagram. The design has been carried through to completion with meticulous detail, rigour and persistence, and engendered a transfer of knowledge, process and technology between Foster + Partners and the Malaysian firm GDP Architects, which has in turn led to their collaboration on other projects.
