Petronas Towers

The Petronas Twin Towers (also known as the Petronas Tower) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia has the distinction of being the world’s tallest high rise of the 20th century. On April 15, 1996, the Council on Tall Buildings named Petronas Twin Towers the tallest in the world, passing the torch to a new continent.

Although the project’s developers had not originally set out to surpass Chicago’s Sears Tower, they did aspire to construct a monument announcing Kuala Lumpur’s prominence as a commercial and cultural capital. These towers, which were designed by Argentinean architect Cesar Pelli, were completed in 1998.

The 88-floor goers are constructed largely of reinforced concrete, with a steel and glass façade. The towers feature a sky bridge between the two towers on 41st and 42nd floors. The bridge is 170m high and 58m long.
