Concrete Blocks


Recently, I saw some quite amazing residential properties in Kuala Lumpur (in Cheras).  The unusual part about the properties is that they are all 3-level, whether they're terrace, semi-D or detached.  What's with so many levels anyway?

Do you find any fascination in modern days concrete blocks?

I am now most willing to trade in my double storey house for a single storey anytime!

Love the zig zag patterns of the concrete blocks.

Nice capture of the lights

Reanaclaire,
haha! I know what you mean. I like single storey yet I like it on higher ground. Apartment will be perfect.

Mei Teng,
This is a well known bank, so called the multi-millionaires club. The grid lines that wrap around it has symbolic meaning in the financial world.

Filip,
Thank you. I thought I could have done better. A bit over-exposure

Nice. The grid structure adds aesthetics as well as giving the building the tough look. Is this in Sydney?

Reminds me of the Nest in Beijing. Saw a docu on its construction. Interesting and eye-opening it was.

Thanks for sharing this pretty picture, Ai Shiang. Always love your professional perspective and vibrant colors, soaps included. Say, are we due for a new batch already? Just wondering but don't mind me.. Cheerio!

Ai Shiang said...

Happysurfer,
Yes, it's in Sydney.

You must be reading my mind huh? I might be making some soaps this easter. I think I might experience extreme boredom, so I need to find something to do :o)

Cool building! I saw something similar to the bird nest olympic stadium (beijing)in Suzhou. Apparently, the olympic building imitated the Science center in Suzhou!

Ai Shiang said...

Gina,
Haha! Copying is their style like always :o)

You capture the building architecture well ... simple yet elegant especially with the unique outer frames. Still curious what symbolic meaning of the grid lines in the financial world? Guess it is non-Chinese meaning cos I think Chinese fengshui will avoid sharp corners ;) Oh ya, i will not be updating my old blog at Ben's Slice of Life... check-out my new photoblog at http://benedictchow.blogspot.com. Cheers!

The pic you posted has a very fascinating design; the unique facade made the otherwise 'normal' building a very eye-catchy landmark! Good shot :)

That building looks great. I admire modern concrete blocks with some greenery around it :-)
