The project consists of two basements covering an area of approximately 160m x 93m and two identical parallelogram tower blocks each 37 storeys tall. The form of the towers is similar to the form used by I. M. Pei in the National Gallery of Art East Building in Washington, D.C. The twin-tower development of this site is intended to signify symbolically the 'Gateway' to Singapore. Therefore the two buildings are named 'The Gateway East' and 'The Gateway West'. Locals refer to the buildings as "two towering cardboard boxes". The buildings are detailed in a way that If you see them from a certain angle they seem to be two-dimensional.
