Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Welcome to capital of Malaysian Federation - Kuala Lumpur!
Once it was small hamlet on coast of Brown river (it mean Kuala Lumpur), and now it's one of the main economic centers of our world.

On April 15, 1996, the Council on Tall Buildings named the Petronas Towers the tallest in the world, passing the torch to a new continent. Although the project's developers, a consortium of private investors in association with the Malaysian government and Petronas, the national oil company, had not originally set out to surpass Chicago's Sears Tower, they did aspire to construct a monument announcing Kuala Lumpur's prominence as a commercial and cultural capital. In the design of American architect Cesar Pelli they found a winning scheme-twin towers of elegant proportions with a slenderness ratio (height to width) of 9.4-that would capture not only the title but the public imagination.
