Petronas Twin Towers: Architectural Wonder

Cesar Pelli designed the Twin Towers, which took three years to build and a year to complete the groundwork. The Petronas Twin Towers are built on the world’s deepest foundations, and the architectural design is a tube within a tube. The towers began construction on April 1, 1994, and finished with 88 floors on March 1, 1996. The steel and glass appearance of the building resembles motifs from Islamic art, with the towers themselves made of reinforced concrete.
