CELEBRICKTION at Bangsar Village (Part 3)

There were also a few micro builds, featuring prominent Malaysian landmarks. Here's the National Parliament building, a great example of the early modernist style, notable for its facade's brise soleil - sun shading elements...

...examples of recent and more contemporary designs, the Petronas Twin Towers and the KL Tower...

...Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad, built during colonial times but influenced by Moorish architecture, to reflect the ruling Malays Islamic cultural influence.

Besides buildings there were also builds of ferrys, which were used to commute between Pulau Pinang and Seberang Prai - and still in use today, even after the Pulau Pinang Bridge was commissioned in 1985.

Lastly, here's a mosaic portrait of Tunku Abdul Rahman, one of the nations founding fathers and the 1st Prime Minister of Malaysia.
