Dayabumi Complex in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

One of Kaula Lumpur’s earliest skyscrapers was commissioned by PETRONAS, an oil and gas company founded in 1974 by Malaysia’s government. When the Dayabumi Complex opened a decade later, it served as the headquarters for Petroliam Nasional Berhad until they moved into the PETRONAS Twin Towers in 1996. The facade of the 515 foot Dayabumi Tower (Menara Dayabumi) has many Islamic architectural features. They include eight-pointed stars (rub el hizb) in the crisscross fretwork of the tall lancet arches.
