  24. 24. Foliage Canopy foliage is a natural filter that reduces rainwater fall Areas that are least covered by foliage are exposed to more rainwater fall. .
  25. 25. Inclined Slope Slopes along the the path from a basin that will catch rainwater potentially causing soil to soften. Thus resulting in path deformation.
  26. 26. Inclined Slope Shown in a massing model, rainwater flows down from all sides of the inclined slopes from the site. Creates cascading fall of water on all sides.
  27. 27. Ground Pavers Pavers have patterned holes to reduce rainwater accumulation. The ground at the tower will potentially collect rainwater due to the flat surface of the peak. Exposed Ground Exposed ground soil captures rainwater allowing it to permeate through soil strata
  28. 28. The types of soil on site determines and plays a huge part in construction and vegetation. Analysis and suitability is carried by touch as well as the percentage of gravel, sand and fines.

  40. 40. trengthS Weakness O Tpportunities hreats - Vegetation provides shade for 70% of the site. - Paving stones used in the tower area helps with the dispersion of water through the soil. - Different layers of the canopy (from the palms to the meranti tree tops) create different atmospheres for users on different levels. - Excavation of soil is needed in order to create land that is safe to build. - The gradient slope can be dangerous to young users such as children. - Soil such as clay can cause flooding under the tower creating an undesirable habitat for users due to increase of mosquitos. - Removal of trees during excavation may cause landslides. - Deforestation of the site will destruct the natural habitat and poses a threat to the ecosystem. - A very dense forest creates an eye-opener to users to learn about endangered species, such as the endangered Meranti Merah. Awareness can be raised to this cause.

  43. 43. Light Intensity HIGH MEDIUM LOW Red area indicates the highest concentration of UV Rays. More sunlight exposed when there are lesser trees shaded. Yellow area indicates the moderate exposure of sunlight. Green area indicates the most shaded area due to surrounded by trees.
  44. 44. Shaded Area ● Tower provide a lot of shades. These shaded area provides refuge from sunlight and rain.
  45. 45. People in the Site Most people wore more less revealing clothes because they want to avoid getting bitten by insects and exposure of sunlight. While other people who wears more revealing clothes such as sleeveless tops and shorts to make themselves cooler by the presence of wind. Some people wore caps to avoid sunlight distracting their sight.
  46. 46. ● RAIN When it rains: Advantages ● The site is free from flooding due to the hill Disadvantages ● The route to the site will become very slippery and not recommended for people to hike, as the slope is also very steep ● Trees that are weaker is seen to tumble due to strong wind ● The humid conditions after the rain seems to attract many insects such as mosquitos and ants to many of the trees and existing structures Trees here provide more shelter during rain Many red ants nests The trees here provide no shelter for rain
  47. 47. RAIN ● Ridges or steps can be added to the slippery slope to prevent slippage when walking up the slope SUGGESTIONS ● Add more rest stops/shelter area to hide from rain ● Regularly have staff sweep the leaves off the roads as the leaves make walking very slippery
  48. 48. Wind Direction Feel more wind on top of the tower (No trees are blocking the presence of the wind) Feel less wind on the ramp (Trees are blocking the presence of the wind) Wind blown from west Feel more wind on the flat land (No trees are blocking the presence of the wind)
  49. 49. trengthS Weakness O Tpportunities hreats ● High exposure to UV light rays which could cause sun burnt and sun stroke. ● Not enough resting facilities. ● Build more resting and shaded area for people to rest after a tiring hike. ● Potential Solar Energy. ● Accidents easily happen due to steep slope. ● Slippery accidents might occur after or during the rain while hiking. ● Attacks of mosquitoes due to the humid weather. ● Cooling breeze on the higher level.

  65. 65. 6 VIEWS & VISTAS “An awareness of a range of time, events, or subjects; a broad mental view: "the deep and sweeping vistas these pioneering critics opened up" (Arthur C. Danto). botanical garden
  66. 66. ❏ LOCATION ANALYSIS
  67. 67. Location of Bukit Sapu In the middle of many tall buildings in the city, Bukit Sapu Tangan is located in a strategic location as it stands out among all the other surrounding. The green vegetation, and the hill is quite a rare feature in an urbanised area with many modernised buildings, thus making it a unique attraction.
  68. 68. Location of the Garden The garden is located close to Klang and Shah Alam
  69. 69. Tower Location The tower is located at the top of the hill, about 6 km round trip from the entrance gate of Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam. The location of the tower on the map is as shown below(red arrow showing the location of the tower on the map). The tower location allows someone to get a 360 view of the surrounding places when they stand at the top most level of the tower.
  70. 70. Convenience to Travel It is not the easiest task to travel to the Bukit Sapu tower as one has to go through many hilly terrains, covering a distance of 1.8 km and the path keeps getting narrower and steeper as one keeps going up. It however becomes rather more convenient as the path has been tarmacked, making it easier to walk on and that as well, does away with snakes and other crawling animals that might pose as a threat during the hike. Travelling to Taman Botani Negara is convenient as long as someone organizes their own form of transport. Public transportation to the place is grossly lacking. Bukit Sapu is quite remote, as it is located at the top of a hill (Handkerchief Hill)
  71. 71. ❏ DIFFERENT SLOPE HEIGHT VIEWS
  72. 72. A The platform entrance leading the pathway towards the tower. Has a slightly steep slope, bringing suspense to the user to what lies upon it.
  73. 73. B The pathway converging towards a point, engaging the user to move forward. The tall grown trees forms a canopy providing shade and shelter.
  74. 74. C The contrast between dark and light alternates along the route.
  75. 75. D The front part from the entrance is brighter. It is much more brighter and open. It gives a sense of a warm welcoming feeling which invites the user to move forward.
  76. 76. E The slope becomes steeper as it reaches the end. The area is more enclosed compared to the front areas due to the shading of trees. The coverage provides a comfy environment.
  77. 77. F Reaching the tower, the steep slope at the end is brighter as if it’s welcoming the user into a brand new undiscovered environment.
  78. 78. GThe platform at the tower is very bright. The trees around are commonly bushes which allows coverage at the mean time also providing openness.
  79. 79. - Gives a sense of coziness. Not too dark or too bright. - The foliage provides natural shading and also blocks unwanted sunlight entering the pathway. - Cooling breeze will brush through the leaves giving a chilling and windy environment. Shades

  82. 82. -From the north west , the billboard at the entrance can be seen at the beginning. -The shade of the foliage shows the vivid images of the tree which gives a contrast to the trees and light.
  83. 83. At the north east, most of the path are exposed to the sky which makes that area looks brighter and open. The tower can be seen at the end of the path. North East View
  84. 84. South East View
  85. 85. When going back from the tower to the entrance, the slope that going downwards blocks some of the path which gives an illusion that somehow the path seems distorted from some of the angle.

Also, due to the fact that the hike to the tower is the only route to and fro, this would serve as a less taxing, alternative route. Barbeque Area The base of the tower would be the area where the barbeque is held, whereas the tower can serve as the leisure area. Birdwatching The thick and lush greenery provides enough cover for the birdwatchers to stay hidden, while at the same time provide some challenge in finding the exact location of the birds Image reference: http://www.twehost.uk/bh/wp-conte nt/uploads/2015/03/bbqbolderwood .jpg Image reference: https://www.nps.gov/obed/planyour visit/images/birdwatching_lg-556.jp g
  121. 121. Kids Kids would be motivated to hike to the top to observe the view of the botanical garden through the binoculars. Cyclists (Athletes) Extremely steep slopes challenge cyclists and should only be attempted by experts. Tourists Observe the different plants at different altitudes. Photographers The watchtower would encourage photographers to hike up the hill in order to capture the beautiful view of the botanical garden alongside the city’s skyline that can be seen in the background. Nature Lovers The flourishing flora and fauna would catch the attention of visitors who wish to engulf themselves with the surrounding lush greeneries. Target Audience
  122. 122. STRENGTHS - Suitable length for cycling routes. - Challenging slopes along the trail for hiking WEAKNESSES - Lack of rest stops and restrooms - Steep slopes make cycling uphill difficult OPPORTUNITIES - Flying fox due to the suitability in height and lack of alternative routes. - Top of the tower could be provided with binoculars for birdwatching. - Barbeque area at the bottom of the tower THREATS - Steep, unmaintained road leads to danger for cyclists - Absence of shelter would lead to dangerous situations during thunderstorms due to the abundance of trees. - Wild monkeys would start wandering around the trail area after approximately 5.30PM.
