Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 2007

The Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur are the tallest twin towers in the world, and they were the tallest building in the world from 1988 to 2004.  The towers designed by Argentinian architect Caesar Pelli are in my opinion, one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen anywhere.

The towers sit in the grounds of KLCC park designed by the Brazilian landscape designer Roberto Burle Marx.  The KLCC park is an excellent example of intelligently designed public space.  The park is not only a lushly green and calm place to walk, it also has several children’s playgrounds and a large public aquarium.


Below the towers themselves is the Suria department store (one of the largest in Malaysia).


The Petronas Tower’s external metal surfaces gleam in the sunlight of the day and they sparkle like elaborate crystals at night. 


They are truly spectacular examples of beautiful architecture.
