The BATC Tower is a signature high-rise office development, which stands at the centre of a massive proposal ___for Kuala Lumpur.

At the level of urban design, the overall project is one of the largest assemblies that Yeang has ever proposed. The scheme, for 47 acres of landscaped park space, is serviced by a central range of public plazas, boulevard walkways and public car access routes together with a centralised station for the LRT System, which is situated at the junction between the retail, commercial and university facilities.

In addition to the BATC Tower, the development •ndudes five 30-storey office towers all designed within the principles of the bioclimatic agenda and ncorporating Yeang's ideas for vertical urbanism

In overall content, this project for the Business and Advanced Technology Centre (BATC) and a Branch of UTM (University Teknologi Malaysia) will incorporate facilities for a School of Advanced Education programmes and an integrated research and development complex for some 20 institutes and centres The proposal has resonances with similar developments in major universities, such as Cambridge <UK), and other locations on a global basis. Together with this, Yeang has proposed a high-tech office park; convention and exposition centres; a multimedia and IT college, mega-theme mall for retail and entertainment, major outdoor public spaces with cultural uses, residential accommodation for students, Post-graduates and academic researchers; a four-star hotel for visitors, tourists and local residents with business centres and facilities; and a public park and boulevard that runs throughout the development Pf°ject The central theme is that of a landscaped se«'ng and a sheltered traffic-free environment.

The central spine of the project running north to i°Uth'ls essentially surrounded by the major higher °rm5, that 'nc'ude the BATC Tower on the western side.

th€, RATC signature Tower stands amongst the «jn.ficant of Yean«;* bioclimatic skyscraper proposals. Ttedtv th ^ this major form are two major principles: tat the inclusion of vertically linked, continuous landscaping tc terraced skycourts and second the application " verticil urbanism which Yeang describes as 'places-in the sky'" the *menit,es of a dty' vertical,y distributed •K'Obghout the tower-form. While this has become a recurrent obiective proposition in Yeang's work, the BATC Tower is one of the richest designs that he has composed i this respect. The design is further strengthened by the extensive facilities of the related plaza and Exposition Centre, which share a similar climatic openness.

in reviewing the BATC Tower floor plans, over some 60 or more levels, several features are immediately clear. The ^wer levels are marked by the entrances and transportation links, and the higher levels by extensive jinked tenant areas, interspersed with special functions, skycourts and public spaces. Throughout the vertical arrangement, linkages in the form of pedestrian ramps are mduded at intervals, augmenting the elevator systems and facilitating a flowing spatiality of movement.

The special functions include restaurants at various upward locations, an E-FX Gallery, and a Digital Output Center These are supported by sky plazas, outdoor public space, internal atria and continuous vertical gardens. The whole assembly is capped by a planar wing-form roof, which shelters high-level observation decks.

The skyscraper has four refuge zones distributed vertically, which define the sets of tenant floors and public uses that are incorporated. At the lower levels gymnasia, swimming pool and health center are accompanied by an auditonum and family center. Similarly at the higher levels, seminar rooms, computer and production suites are mixed together with tenant spaces, sky lounges and an all-digital public amphitheatre. These groupings serve merely as examples of the extensive range of provision and occupancy that Yeang has induced within the rising vertical framework - a continuously upward flowing urbanistic spatiality

Characteristically, the hot eastern tower facade is solar Protected by a rising range of services and elevators, with the lon8est elevations facing south and north. The canted semi-rectilinear plan is sliced open at intervals to allow air-fl°w ventilation to both offices and public spaces. Together with the skycourts. fabric engineering and Integrated U'lding Management Systems (which control internal conditions by monitoring the immediate external the°Und ngS through environmental sensors located on * roof>- ^e entire building is part of a bioclimatic entity, 'CA| aPP"« »0 the whole project and site.
