The beautiful MICA Building in Singapore, home to the Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts, with its 927 colored windows painted in the shades of the rainbow, reflecting Singapore’s multicultural heritage. The colors gradually intensify as the eye moves up to highlight the cantilevered balconies. Formerly the Hill Street Police Station, the six-story neo-classical style building was the largest government building upon its completion in 1934 and considered a modern skyscraper at the time. Today, of course, it is dwarfed by real skyscrapers. (Top photo Singapore Tourism Board; bottom photo flickr/chooyutshing).
