Putrajaya International Convention Center

Putrajaya International Convention Center, originally uploaded by vedd.

A change from seascapes for now. This is taken not too long ago using 50mm f/1.8 lens. I was interested on finding out how good the lens was. I'm impressed and money well spent, even though it's cheap :)

Putrajaya International Convention Centre or PICC is the main convention centre in Putrajaya, Malaysia. This building is located on the top of Taman Puncak Selatan in Precinct 5.

It was constructed between 2000 and 2003 at a cost of RM600mil. Since October 2004, the Putrajaya Convention Centre is officially known as Putrajaya International Convention Centre or PICC to reflect the state of the art conference facilities at par with other international conference centre such as in London, Tokyo and Paris. The name change, which was perceived necessary as a marketing strategy and to internationalize Putrajaya, was first mooted by Dato Shafiq Abdullah, Deputy Under Secretary, Prime Minister's Department and endorsed by Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, former Prime Minister of Malaysia. Besides hosting the 10th Conference of Organization of Islamic Countries, PICC also became one of the most favoured conference venue for high security risk events, hosted by the government or private sector. PICC has had many important guests including foreign head of states and heads of government, important corporate personalities such as the world's richest man, Bill Gates. Due to its strategic location on the top of the hill in Putrajaya and facing beautiful lakes, it has also become one of most popular places and "hot" sites for film shootings especially for commercial advertisements. Despite these, the PICC is heavily under-utilised and it may take 300 years to recoup its original cost, excluding maintenance fees.

your night work is wonderful mate. I actually like this better then the seascapes. Our cities aren't lite up as nice so they are rather boring on this end.
