When in 1991 Petronas (Oil&Gas) Company decided to develop the tallest towers, architect Cesar Pelli impressed with his proposal.
Located in the centre of Malaysian Capital - KLCC towers are local icon and symbol of a great leap forward of this South-East Asian country.
Officially opened in August 1999 until 2004 Twin Towers were considered as the world tallest building.
The 88 floor towers are constructed of reinforced concrete with steel-glass fašades inspired by Islamic art as a reflection of Malaysians Muslim religion.
Due to the depth of the bedrock the buildings were built on 120-meter foundations.
The sky-bridge connects the two towers on 41st and 42nd floors. It is not attached to the main structure, but is designed to slide in and out of the towers to prevent it from breaking during high winds. It can also function as an escape route in case of emergencies.
