Prelude to a thunderstorm

This building is one of my favourite skyscrapers in Singapore. UOB Plaza 1 and 2 (right and left), on the Singapore river bank.  Each tower has an octagonal base with a geometric patterned shaft. The cross section is an eight-point star which is commonly used in Islamic art; on Fridays the faithfuls gather for prayers in the mosque in the basement.

Octagonal base, eight-point star, underground mosque. Coincidence?

This photo was taken tonight, the air pregnant with moisture. Prelude to a thunderstorm.
