Here is one guy’s impression of what the PGCC would look like from Komtar. KL Dude has had a go on photo editor with the earlier picture of the PGCC Twin Towers posted on this blog; only this time he has actually added the 38 towers in front of those “iconic” towers. Perhaps his impression is not really to scale, but you get the idea… It’s a (concrete) jungle out there, folks!
Meanwhile, I spotted this comment posted by a visitor on another blog:
Its true when they say all that glitters is not gold – you too got swept away by fab images – well, guys, just take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penang_Global_City_Centre; then you will see that we will not get a look at Hani Rashid’s masterpiece after all – it is hidden behind 38 towers.
And as for attempts to create a Karbon O city – oh boy – when there are so many interesting samples to look at this one makes us look outmoded before we start to build!
Back to Penang – take a look at Asymptote web site
