Petronas Towers situated in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The world's highest twin towers. Status 1,483 ft (452 m) high, they were developed by the Argentinian-American designer Cesar Pelli. Completed in 1997, they exceeded Chicago's Willis Tower (then the Sears Tower) as the track record-holding highest design; they independently were exceeded by Taipei 101 in 2003. The twin towers house Petronas, Malaysia's government-owned oil organization, as well as connected Malaysian companies and worldwide organizations. Part of a huge rush of development that noticeable the country's 1990s economic growth.
Petronas Towers buildings take a position at the northern end of a estimated high-tech business area, the Malaysia Multimedia Supercorridor. Built of steel-strengthened real content clad in metal steel and glass, with a style based on geometrical designs originating in historical Islam, the 88-story buildings are linked at levels 41 and 42 by a double-decker people skybridge, and every tower is surmounted by a 242-ft-high (74-m) pinnacle. At the cheaper level, the Petronas Towers also contain a conjunction hall that is home to the Malaysian Philharmonic and a business referrals archives.
Petronas Towers include 88 stories as well as an extra structural factor (at 1242 feet), plus a high spire to 1483 feet. Compete with the Sears Tower in Chicago which is 110 stories, and the twin World Trade Center towers in New York, which were each 110 stories. Even though these other tall buildings were designed with larger filled floors, they are not regarded as tall within the arcane guidelines used for ranking the world's tallest, based on which design spires rely towards building height, but antennas upon a building do not.
