Heard the matic or dewan Tunku Abdul Rahman status as a heritage building going to be revoked.
Maybe they should do it as how the 438 metres, 111 W. 57th St. - Steinway Tower in NYC is integrated with the landmarked Steinway Hall. The historical structure is conserved by repurposing it as part of the newer tower.Agreed, but disagree that Matic is not a heritage building. It was our first Parliament building before our current one came up, & it was the place our first Agong was installed. Also, its architecture is stunning.
Singapore uses "chessboard" approach for their urban planning where high rise blocks interspersed with low rise development, thus gives some sort of not so messy illusion. Not to mention park/greenery in between the spaces.Kuala Lumpur city did not follow America's style which is grid system in city planning so it will be quite messy.
However if you look at Singapore it doesn't really look messy. I think why this picture doesn't look nice is because there are many no well maintain building in the picture. You can see many shoplots/houses with fugly roof. If you look at the down left side of the photo.... those building with different roof color and many mold on the building structure ruin it. DBKL seriously need to force those shop owner to paint their shops every few years. Also unified the rooftop color.
Also too many "normal" residence building which painted white/yellow and not much design. If all those were turn into glassy building... might be different haha.
