To anyone that have embarrased american-stop being pathetic and respect others..this world have many other country,not only america..this is building vs building competition..i hope,this is not the americans that i will face when i move there this end of month..please show how polite american are.btw,i vote petronas because i think it was very elegant,shining,modern and the propotion is better when both tower standing beside each other connecting with the skybridge and facing the man made lake in the middle of the park.it was awesome,a marvelous masterpiece creation,credit to mahathir,pelli and everyone that involve in this project..

By the way, I think both CB and PTT are already the winner here. Different people have different taste and preference. I voted for PTT simply because it look more futuristic, great geometry from every angle, the skybridge and of course it's twins!!!
For CB, i think the crown is just amazing and I do like it a lot. But the rest of the building is just so-so to me. But a great building nevertheless considering it was built 80 years ago.
So guys, at the end of the day, it's just a poll for fun. Don't be too emotional

All the pretty pictures are really making me want to visit the PTT. It looks really classy and I'd really like to see it in person.

I like the dark feel I get from Chrysler in these photos...

Voted for Petronas. It was a hard choice, but I figured that the Petronas is my style of architecture.

I think for future polls, there ought to be a fair display of images. Both towers need to be fully shown and it needs to give people a clear idea of the contesting towers. I hope the mods learn this and apply it to the underconstruction skyscraper tournament. For that poll, every tower should be rendered and the complete tower should be seen.

As with this poll, I have no comment

You better show some respect, stereotypical generalizations are just as bad as racism.

I've just lost any semblance of excitement on whoever is going to win this. This is getting way out of hand.
