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.

Today, of course, it is dwarfed by real skyscrapers. (Top photo Singapore Tourism Board; bottom photo flickr/chooyutshing).
