Abstract

2020 is the 25th anniversary of Putrajaya, Malaysia's new Garden City administrative centre. But, the early development of this city has attracted critical views. This paper aims to examine Putrajaya's engineered landscapes' habitability and how they affect the quality of the living environment. The objective of this study is to identify the perceptions of professionals on these engineered landscapes and their contributions to users and the local community. It engages a descriptive analysis of webinar inputs by esteemed experts and professional respondents of an online survey. The results show that Putrajaya has potential as a planned green city model.
