Purpose-built cities tend to have a negative connotation about them. Often derided as soulless places, lacking in personality, character or colour. I’m inclined to agree but a short trip to Malaysia’s Putrajaya is pretty worthwhile nonetheless especially to see a glimpse of some impressive structures like this mosque by a man-made river. Known as Masjid Besi (Iron Mosque) or more formally as the Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque, it has no need for fans or an air-conditioning system, instead employing an intricate “"Architectural Wire Mesh."
