History of construction 
In summer 1991 there was a call for competitive tender that attracted 8 international architecture studios. The winning project was the one by “Cesar Pelli & Associates” with its leading architect César Pelli. The structural design was provided by the engineering consulting firm “Thorton-Tomassetti”. According to media, while working on his project the architect also considered the wishes of the Malaysian Prime Minister to add some Islamic ideas to the design of the building. The construction of the towers was operated in 2 shifts and that allowed the towers to be erected at an quick phase of 15 cm per day.

The bridge hanging between the towers was assembled on the ground and then lifted up and fixed by cranes. The bridge is supported by a two-leg arch; each of the hinges has round rotational bearings at the base considering that the towers move in the wind with the altitude of up to 1.5m at the highest point. 

Now one of the towers is the headquarters of “Petronas” company and the other tower leases offices to other different companies.

Visitors can purchase the tickets online, or come and stand in line in the morning of the same day. The tour will take the visitors to the bridge on the 41st floor and the observation gallery on the 86th floor.
