    Sunway Pyramid

    Some subtle essence of Las Vegas has made its way to Kuala Lumpur via the Sunway Pyramid. This project is a world within a world-- a family-friendly destination for recreation, shopping and adventure. It's a resort with a mega-mall attached; a water park with an Egyptian theme; an internalized environment well outside of the urban core. It has its own freeway exit. There are 2 or 3 hotels here, a water park, amusement park, a mega-mall, condominium tower, all internally interconnected and extending to the Sunway University Campus across the valley. Its prominence is geologic in scale.

    The mega-mall itself encloses a large rectangular promenade, with a themed atrium at each vertex. The peripatetic wayfarer that braves this institution, making a circuit through all four vertices would have walked over 1000 feet. A complete examination of each of the mall's five floors would have our wayfarer bear witness to at least one mile of retail on each flank.
