There are some structures that stand in as a representative for a particular city or culture. Think of the Great Wall, the Pyramids, the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower; they are more than stone or steel they are part of the national and even the world’s consciousness. The Petronas Towers do the same for Malaysia, and serve notice that a new nation is beginning to make a statement to the world. It is also a beautiful and powerful structure in its own right. We were impressed.
