Inspired by the winding jungle streams and lush riverine flora of the Malaysian Archipelago, this aquatic courtyard garden is designed as a tranquil escape in an urban residence in the heart of downtown Kuala Lumpur.

The Tourism Malaysia Garden at Chelsea Flower Show 2011

Based on the traditional Malaysian architectural feature of the "courtyard pool" -  designed to cool and refresh the air in urban houses -  this unashedly modernist reinvisioning will use sheets of water, pale blue tropical waterlilies & a tranquil sunken pavilion to create a space that is as aesthetic as it is functional.
