From the architect. The Petaling Jaya Comerical City (PJCC) on-site sales office and showroom gallery, also known as the POD is situated off Jalan PJS2 in Petaling Jaya. Located a mere 15-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur city centre with direct access off the easy-flowing New Pantai Expressway (NPE), the POD stands with a gross floor area of 750 sqm. The POD futuristic landmark design is reflective of Mother Nature's water droplets with a form that demonstrates sophistication and elegance. The unique elliptical form of the POD enhances the building to be stood up from the surrounding atmosphere.

Internally, the POD is divided into two parts: one zone is dedicated to the on-site sales office and the other serves as the main showroom and sales gallery. From both ends of the POD, it offers a very picturesque landscape to look at. Framed by a vast floor to ceiling glazing located at the end of the exhibition area, there is an infinity reflective water pool, a feature that adds Feng Shui for the design. At the other end, one of the office spaces overlooks a beautiful sculpture garden filled with neatly manicured shrubberies. The combination of these two elements contributes to the Bioclimatic behaviour and wellness of its inhabitants.

It will probably become known as the "caterpillar building". Not sure if it is "beautiful" but I am glad it was designed and built. Kudos to the architects and thanks for sharing.
