The brief of the project is to develop a master plan for a free access zone in Tanjung Puteri, Johor Bahru. The overall idea and theme for the master plan is smart architecture or intelligent city. The design embraces the idea of sustainability through technology advancement, in which every single infrastructure in the master plan is controlled by an intelligent system to optimize usage of energy. The lists of infrastructures in the master plan are housing, offices, shops, clubhouses, health centre, education centre, and immigration. Smart architecture is not complicated. Sometimes a simple and hence ostensibly ‘dumb’ building is smarter than a technology dominated living-and-working machine over which the user has lost control.
