Back in KL


This is the view eastward towards downtown and the Federal Highway, a river of car lights and traffic that never ceases. 

The curved building, Mesiniaga, partially framed at the end of the axis, is by Ken Yeang and won the Aga Khan award for architecture in 1993. It is the only example, I believe, of his ‘Bioclimatic Skyscraper’ that was ever built. 

We’re in our Airbnb apartment on the 12th floor looking out on to other buildings we’ve seen constructed over the last decade of visits to the Malaysian capital. To be living inside one, if only briefly, is very interesting but for all the wrong reasons.
