For those who have said Petronas has an easy final, as Lee Corso would say,



I'll say it again: Woolworth has beaten Chrysler handily in a poll on here before, even more so than Petronas proportionally. It'll certainly receive support from people who love classical architecture, details, history, and the ornamental effort. I'm actually going to say that I think it'll win.

Really, even as a Malaysian, I do not see an easy victory for the Petronas towers. One, as L.A.F.2. has mentioned, there are many fans of classical architecture out there, and two, as I shall say, there are people more than a bit resentful over Petronas beating the Chrysler.

So, in the name of glory!! VOOOTE!!!

Interesting emphasis on the word help lol. So the PTT look great without any lighting? Sure, sure. Imho it's the other way around: it's the PTT which need all the lighting to camouflage the tacky cladding.
The Woolworth Building looks great both at day and night. The details on this skyscraper are unprecedented.

It's getting really annoying with you and your obsession for the PPT.
