The Bahrain World Trade Centre
Completed in 2008 by the international architectural firm Atkins, the 240-metre Bahrain World Trade Centre was yet another large scale project aimed at maintaining Bahrain's image as a regional business centre. Since their construction, they have become the absolute landmark symbol of Bahrain, and the inclusion of the luxurious Moda Mall below has also made them a destination. The turbines in the middle were meant to generate enough power to sustain the building, but unfortunately tenants complained of dizzying vibration they caused, so they've been fixed in place ever since. The two towers of the BWTC are located on the northern Manama corniche, close to the Financial Harbour twin buildings. For modern architecture lovers, these structures are an object of admiration.
