a pic a day (day 12)

the federal government complex at jalan duta, kuala lumpur which was completed in 1978, currently houses the internal revenue board malaysia and ministry of international trade and industry. the five identical buildings have been the landmark of jalan duta for almost 23 years before they were overtaken by the federal territory mosque as the new face of jalan duta and soon to be eclipsed by the new national palace, which is still under construction while making copious amount of money for some and burdening the rest.
the weather in the photo, taken in january 2008, seemed to agree to the bleak future that awaits them, not appealing enough to be appreciated and loved, not ancient enough to be considered a world heritage site.
