Summary
In the late 1980s, the Malaysian government built a skyscraper so ambitious and unprecedented in size that it sought to overtake Chicago's Sears Tower as the tallest building in the world. The elaborately curved Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur achieved both goals. However, for Cesar Pelli, it would be an enormous design challenge on a rocky and unchartered road. Getting the towers built in Malaysia would prove almost impossible for this Western architect charged with creating a national symbol that respected the past while looking forward towards the 21st century
