I am not sure what is so ‘heritage’ about this ‘mothership’, which has parked itself at one side of the plans for the Penang Heritage Square near Komtar.
And I don’t think full-grown trees can be cultivated on a roof-top garden.
The Penang Heritage Square plans were put up for public comment at Level 3 in Komtar until 30 September, but I think few people were aware of the display. I only noticed it when I happened to pass by and of course, I registered my objection to this structure.
The area would be better off maintained as a public park in the city or perhaps part of it could be used as a scaled-down street food (open air?) heritage museum and/or a street food area set in say, 1950s Penang.
Thanks to blog reader Spencer for sending in the image.
