Abstract: The Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur is the national capital of Malaysia and forms the core of the nation's most populous urban region. It is the increasingly global orientation of the city and its implications for the wider urban region which form the focus of this profile. Material infrastructure and spectacular symbolic spaces facilitating the globalization of Kuala Lumpur have overwhelmingly concentrated in a new southern growth corridor over the past decade or more. We detail the rise and socio-spatial implications of an expanded Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan Area (KLMA). Three interrelated dimensions - information and communications technologies (ICTs), transport and housing - are critically evaluated in turn. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
