This study discusses a comparative analysis of the thermal surface temperature of high-rise apartments designed with late modern styles in Malaysia. In Malaysia, apartments are divided to two categories namely midrise and highrise apartments. Highrise apartments are the residential buildings higher than five stories equipped with elevator whereas midrise apartments have no elevators with 3 to 5 stories’ height. The results of this study will provide a thermal surface data of the apartment facades. The data enhances the level of sustainability awareness of the architectural styles on facade design to the tropical context. This thermal surface analysis will increase the design awareness of the architects who design the buildings in complying with their understanding to the climatic factors. Late modern design styles have a complex geometric design with ranging from simple to complex roof structures which have an emphasis on abstract geometric form in building design. In this study, two late modern design apartments are selected as the case studies. The location of these apartments is in Putrajaya, the latest new town built as an administrative city of Malaysia. The thermal surface data will be detected by a thermal device named Fluke Ti20 Infrared Camera. This camera will capture thermal images of the apartment facades. The analysis indicates that the facade design of both apartments does not achieve to curb solar radiation due to higher surface temperatures recorded in the on-field data compared to the highest average outdoor temperature at 32.4°C in Putrajaya. In conclusion in design of apartments shading and passive design are very important in tropical climate.
