Concept: My memory of the former stadium includes the great moments I had during the Malaysian Cup Football. This was the real roar! Ironically, the stadium icon did not stir up my spirits in those days. Free form in the shape of a fallen leaf on the stadium grounds outside the stadium automatically comes to mind. Recycling the planks to form a LEAF shape resembles the stadium form.
