Well, I should just be honest, right?

I love the vernacular Malay element at the base, but otherwise this building is just ugly. I've seen it photographed from many angles, remember when it was built and I just can't stomach it.

It starts off great with the broad base angling up but gets lost in the homogenous, 60's looking crap of the shaft and top. Maybe I have to see it in person. There are many buildings I admire in KL, this one takes away from the skyline IMO. 5/10

Please obscure it with other talls.

I saw this building in 1998, and I liked the leafy shelter the descending canopy provided at the base, and the angular top. 8.5/10.

Different and intriguing for sure.

Moreso if it was built decades ago, though. 6.
