Well, this one is.
The fountains in the front definitely help.

Shows how they blow our money instead of paying better interest.

Ha! No kidding. I like how it says that it’s a “Public Bank.”

I noticed the public bank as well, and may have even snarfed at the moniker. Given the dichotomy you refer to so often, and the grandiose stature of the building, I wonder who, exactly, qualifies as “public”? Then again, what do i know – I don’t even live there! That’s just how it looks 🙂

This bank is in Malaysia, and I know less about it than I do about Indonesia. I just liked the way it looked.

The ways that banks ‘look’ is intentional, & shows the ways architecture is used to project an emotional feeling. In the ‘old days’, banks looked like a mix of temples & fortresses — evoking a sense of money as a sacred trust, or a spiritual need perhaps, & the sense that your money was wholly & completely safe. Now, many suburban branch banks (in the U.S. anyway) have a homey, welcoming kind of look. Some, as with this image, project a sense that, these people who take care of, use & loan your money, have the sanction of kings ……… or maybe just live like them.

Like kings on the backs of their investors.

Yeah! When I was a young kid, whenever we went through a small town, my grandmother would point to the largest, fanciest house & say: That’s where the banker lives.
