What makes a building iconic? [Newspaper] (2019)


N iconic building is one that captivates a city or even a nation. Iconic buildings are most successful when there is a socio-cultural layer to their development, says Hannes Pfau, partner at UNStudio, an Amsterdam-based architecture company. "The urban fabric of Kuala Lumpur has many examples of modernist architecture that have an added richness because they not only demonstrate quality design, but also respond to local climates and ways of life,” he said. Pfau said, iconic buildings can benefit cities on multiple levels.
