Petronas Towers

Petronas Towers

H Pillars are a type of pillarmid which consists of two towers which are connected in the middle giving it the appearance of the letter H. Sometimes the letter H itself is used to represent two pillars, such as in the logo for the movie Manhattan, by Woody Allen.

The letter H is the eighth in the English alphabet, thus resonating with the octagon.

The device connecting the two towers can vary a great deal. H pillars can be seen on the face of castles and cathedrals with two large towers on either side of the entrance, or even in the sun rising between two pyramids, making it more of an H-Pillarmid.
