Petronas Towers

Name of Model: Petronas Towers
Created by: Arthur Gugick
Found at:
Landmark builder Arthur Gugick decided to take on the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia some time ago. Like most of his landmarks, they stand as a masterpiece. When this model's inspiration was originally constructed in Malaysia, the Petronas Towers were the tallest skyscraper in the world. They've since been overtaken by Taipei 101, which longtime readers will recall has also been rendered in LEGO form. While I doubt that these LEGO towers are breaking any records, I'd say that the look of the 88-stories-tall Petronas Towers was captured well here. Even without many of the clever techniques we've seen in other buildings (particular in this small scale), this is still instantly recognizable.
