BiodiverCity is a masterplan by BIG that will see three islands built off the shore of Penang Island, Malaysia, connected by an autonomous transport network.

The vast land reclamation project, which will encompass 1821 hectares, is being developed by BIG for Penang State Government in collaboration with Ramboll and local architect Hijjas.

Each island is modelled on the form of a lilypad and will be composed of mixed-use districts, 4.6 kilometres of public beaches, 242 hectares of parks and a 25-kilometre-long waterfront.
