#033 l Menara Telekom l KUALA LUMPUR l 310m l 55fl

Menara Telekom
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


HEIGHT: 310m/1,017 feet
FLOORS: 55 floors
COMPLETION: 2000
ARCHITECT: Hijjas Kasturi Associates

Menara Telekom is a state-of-the-art intelligent office building and rated 6-star by DBKL.

55 levels high at 310 meters and shaped like a sprouting "bamboo shoot", Menara Telekom is a unique landmark on the Kuala Lumpur skyline and cannot be mistaken for just another high rise. This new landmark will be Telekom Malaysia's new Corporate Head Office.

This stunning piece of architecture is located along the Federal Highway and Jalan Pantai Baharu. It is served by the Kerinchi LRT (Putra) station.

8/10

Very aerodynamic. Looks like a shark's fin. This building's shape puzzled me for a long time. Hypermount says that its design is inspired by the budding shoot of bamboo
(this building has sky gardens and I imagine those large balconies are also refuge floors?)

Sorry steelcity..I meant bamboo, not lotus

The shape is very cool, but I really don't like the bland facade. It sort of ruins it for me. 7/10

The slanting wall on one side is good, but the other side looks ugly.

the Menara Telekom is more good-looking than the butt-ugly Petronas Tower.
