|The Idea of Putrajaya by Dr. Mahathir. Who is Dr. Mahathir?|
Dr. Mahathir...He was Malaysia's 4th Prime Minister. A Big thinker by classification. He has initiated many conceptual projects to boost local economy as well as successfully re-branding the country image internationally. Some of the classic mega-projects pioneered locally are Multimedia Corridor ("MSC"); an original conceptual idea attempting to convert Malaysia into an international IT hub as well creating a new economic model for Malaysia (this idea has been replicated by many other Asian nations today); building an all new Malaysian arterial economic zone with the 848km-long North-South Expressway ("NSE" 1994) (PLUS); relocating the administrative centre for central Government of Malaysia (Putrajaya); .
building the magnificent Suria-KLCC/Petronas Twin Towers without spending a dime from Government budget through privatization; initiated Malaysian's own National Car of Proton; a brand new, ultramodern Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) as well as cleverly uniting all Malaysian under a visionary idea under common National objective with his Vision 2020
Much organisation and planning have gone into the development of Putrajaya as a modern city with the latest communication technologies and progressive infrastructure. The streets are elegantly designed with a European feel, along with well-paved roads while the government buildings are a blend of modern architecture with Islamic arts. Commercial, authoritative and residential areas have been divided into precincts that blend into each other cohesively. A waterway cuts through the city, flowing into a large lake. The concrete landscape is balanced with lots of parks, greenery and wetlands but because the land is relatively flat, it does not look lush. Read more here.
The city is built on a scale completely disproportionate to its current population, with a number of bridges spanning an artificial lake, Putrajaya Lake.
