Your news story on building the world’s second-tallest building in Phnom Penh coincided nicely with the start of Architecture Month. Before the government gets too involved in this project it might consider first completing a less ambitious project like the public toilet in the park next to the Royal Palace and near Wat Botum. It’s been under construction for several years and has been making no progress for almost as long. If they can finish the smaller project then some of the people who can’t afford to live in ivory towers will at least have a proper place to pee. In the meantime, the project leaders can figure out how to dispose of the waste from all of the toilets in world’s second-tallest building without just dumping it into the river for someone else to worry about.
