Petronas Towers

PETRONAS. TOWERS

These twin towers in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia rises up to 452 meters making them the tallest structures in the world for some time until 2004 when Building 101 in Taiwan overtook it. Built as an HQ of the country’s national oil company, the first few floors has a prestigious mall and concert hall. The whole facade is cladded with stainless steel so that at night when it is all lit up, the twins give off a luminous glow. There is a viewing deck which is open to the public located in the sky bridge that connects the two buildings and acts as a structural stabilization support.
