Dude, for ****'s sake, it isn't a photo contest.

This kind of contest is absurd because I'd bet about 1% of voters are actually educated enough to make informed, more objectively based votes as opposed to voting for one or the other based on vague, sweeping generalizations.

I was curious about what this contest is about. It is good to see people so passionate about their preferences, but some of you really need to concentrate on your perceived qualities of the buildings and stop bashing entire cultures because of personal bias you have............it really takes the fun out of this kind of thing........... Personally it makes me not want to say anything about anyone of them for fear of getting my head chewed off.

All those people complaining about the Chrysler buildig being a concrete structure. So what? Petronas is just glass. I like concrete.

I don't say that I dislike Petronas, but Art deco is just one of my favourite architectural styles. The entrance in post 1366 is just amazing imho. Furthermore, I think that it was just a great achievement to build such high towers in the late 20s, early 30s. Chrysler building and Empire state building were the tallest buildings in the world until the early 70s!

As Bruce.Tenmiles say its a popularity contest, plus who actually bothers to vote objectively when seeing such fight going on here in the discussion thread? If i was an American and genuinely liked Petronas better than the Chrysler, i would still vote for Chrysler after seeing this huge fight of Malaysia vs. USA, and vice versa.
