2.The PETRONAS Twin Towers: Standing at a height of 452 metres above ground, the PETRONAS Twin Towers are the tallest twin towers in the world. The towers, which were completed in 1996, are situated in the Kuala Lumpur City Centre on the northern boundary of the Multimedia Super Corridor. Equipped with the state-of-the-art communication facilities, the Twin Towers are a national landmark and a symbol of Malaysia’s socio economic progress and achievements.The floor-plate of the Tower is designed based on geometric patterns common in architecture of Islamic heritage. It is composed of two rotated and superimposed squares with small circular infills. These geometric figures have been described by architects as symbolizing unity, harmony, stability and rationality – all important principles of Islam. Like the exterior design, the Towers’ entrance design was also inspired by the country’s cultural heritage, incorporating contemporary Malaysian motifs adapted from traditional handicrafts such as songket and timber carvings. The overall character of the building is high-tech and international but distinctively Malaysian.
