The building’s name, Merdeka (which means ‘independence’), is inspired by its proximity to two stadiums: Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara. The building will also be the first in Malaysia to receive a triple-platinum rating from worldwide sustainability certifications, including the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
The building is designed with a mixture of diamond shaped glass facades to signify the diversity of Malaysians. The design was made to resemble and inspired by Tunku Abdul Rahman’s outstretched hand gesture while chanting “Merdeka!”, when he proclaimed the independence of Malaysia on 31 August 1957.
The building’s cladding will comprise 18,144 panels, 114,000 square-metre of glass and 1,600 tonnes of window frame extrusions. The building will be equipped and illuminated at night with 8.4 km of LED light strips which would gradually move from one corner to another.
