The footprint of the Petronas towers are in the design of a classical Islamic geometric designed, and provide a striking patterning that makes them quite visually interesting. Amazingly, they are constructed of concrete, not the steel Beams typical of skyscraper construction. One of the most distinctive features of the towers is a large sky bridge that connects the two towers half way up the sides of the buildings, seemingly suspended in space.
The sky didn't really cooperate, but the towers are magnificent at night, like crystals growing out of the earth. There is a nice park in back of the towers, with nice ponds, and a running trail that winds through the trees. I spent quite a bit of time wandering the park and finding different views of the towers.
Here are the photos I ended up with. I hope you enjoy!
