How to ruin KL skyline.

Honestly , remove this horrible ferris wheel and the design will look quite good actually
Uh what? It would look just as terrible if not more so, terrible proportions, like a Hong Kong skyscraper wall blown up to a ridiculous height with two random highrises put on top.

“Designed by Studio F. A. Porsche, M101 Skywheel is poised to be the next international landmark and an international tourist destination, helping to maintain Kuala Lumpur’s spot as a unique destination,” he said.

Construction works on M101 Skywheel have begun, and with the appointment of China Railway Construction Corp Malaysia Bhd, the integrated development is scheduled to be completed by 2021.

M101 SKYWHEEL KUALA LUMPUR
https://www.studiofaporsche.com/

The first of its kind in the world, the M101 SkyWheel with its two towers is a landmark designed to redefine the Kuala Lumpur skyline.

For our approach we applied local Malay design elements through a functional and thoroughly modern lens, turning traditional patterns into bold and new imagery.

Three signature elements help define the building: its red meridian stripe, the reflective black glass and the titanium pedestal, which elevates the building and instills a sense of presence. Each element operates individually and complementarily to form one grand design.

By applying our functional product-design-oriented approach to the façade, with a focus on materials and attention to detail, we ensured that the design stands as a product that challenges conventional design thinking and allows visitors to interact with the space in entirely new ways.

^^ are they for real? Like real chronograph watch cum skywheel design?
According to the developer, 60m ferris wheel's frontage will be embedded with LED screen - visible hundreds of miles away, at its vantage 220m above ground. :lol::lol::lol::lol:

LED screen is viable as the wind resistant is quite ok.
