Photographer's Note

Tun Mustapha Tower

Formely known as Yayasan Sabah Building, this 30 storey circular glass building is supported by high tensile steel rods throughout its structure, an architectural and engineering marvel. It is one of only four such buildings in the world. Built with bold architectural and engineering concepts, it is a building that many thought was not possible. There were also many prophets of doom who predicted that it could not be built as designed, as it was the first of its kind in Asia. They were all wrong because Yayasan Sabah (Sabah Foundation) Headquarters has not only been built, but has become one of the most famous and admired buildings in the country.
The tower-like Tun Mustapha Tower has been likened to a modern Taj Mahal, which changes its colours throughout the day, depending on the clouds, sun and ever changing colours of the sky. This might have been a reason for this building to be one of the main tourist and photographers attractions in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
