The Scale of Our Iconic Monuments - Then & Now

The recently completed Merdeka 118 and The Exchange 106 continue Kuala Lumpur’s trend of developing buildings that are meant to be the tallest in the country, region and the world. It’s interesting to note that once upon a time, Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad was the tallest building in KL. It’s inevitable that progress and development have to happen a certain way, but that does not stop us from reflecting on the scale of iconic and monumental buildings, then and now. Tune in to hear more.
