The Sublime Twin Towers

History was made when the Petronas Twin Towers were completed in 1998. For the first time in architectural history that the tallest building in the world was located outside America in a small tropical country. It marked the rise of Asia during the transition into the 21st century, the Asian Century. Designed by American architect Cesar Pelli, the buildings have become the major attraction to the Malaysian capital city of Kuala Lumpur.

From then on, super tall skyscrapers mushroomed all across Asia and the Middle East. It will be sometime before the Western world, US in particular is able to reclaim back their long held record of having the tallest structure in the world.
