The National Library in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, is a uniquely-designed building. Borrowing its design concept from the traditional Malay headgear known as the tengkolok, the building was built to symbolise pride in and respect for Malaysian culture. The tengkolok-shaped roofs join at a courtyard that serves as an open-air amphitheatre. Another interesting aspect is the roof's songket design, which symbolises the rich cultural heritage of the country.

Well planned and laid out, the library is a vast network of rooms and facilities that is user-friendly, taking the needs of the disabled into consideration as well.
