I was driving on Jln Raja Chulan a few days ago and saw a demonstration outside a Maybank. The banners said something about the tyranny of Maybank. The police were around etc. but it seemed peaceful. Should have more of those.

There's a new building on Jalan Binjai by Foster + Partners which i think the most beautiful well executed Menara Ilham. And they had beautiful sculpture outside and an art gallery which i plan to visit soon enough.

I was up at The Troika to see a customer in his apartment, giving me the chance to see both Foster projects -- the Ilham Tower from the outside, and The Troika from the inside.
Of the two, the Ilham Tower is certainly the more accomplished. It has an unmistakable "designer" appearance. Now, of course each office tower is born of a unique vision -- but only to the architect who conceived it. To the rest of us, it is a generic office tower like hundreds in the city.
The Petronas towers and the Ilham Tower are very different from the rest if its kind. The latter is willfully technical in appearance, like a refined Swiss watch movement.
You needn't look up to notice it. Even from road level the building announces itself.
