^if you can't accept that the chrysler is better than the PTT then atleast accept that the woolworth is. If you can't you are a utter idiot. No one gives a shit about this stupid competition.

I reall love the detail of the woolworth building, that's real craftsmanship! In my Opinion the Petronas Towers are just glass tubes You can really see the development in terms of detail:
Woolworth building->lots of detail
Chrysler->less detail
Petronas-> least detail
Just my Opinion though

Probably because its on topic. I argued for the chrysler when it matched the PTT in the competition, I argued for the ESB when you called it overated. Now another one of my favourite buildings, the woolworth is up against the PTT so I will defend it. If the PTT matched burj khalifa, world building or something like that I would support the PTT because I prefer it. Also when the chrysler beat the PTT previously, you guys just did the same anyway. Plus as architectural art no skyscraper(besides chrysler) can really match the woolworth.

i am not a big fan of the inside, it looks too much like a church for me. however i vote for the outside of the buildings and woolworth is well deserved where it is now. PTT is my favorite building though, so plays quite in a different league for me, but nevertheless woolworth is beautiful, a lot more than chrysler imo.

i don't like the fat lower half of the Woolworth though.. it's a bit awkward IMO.

The Woolworth has a level of detailing only found in gothic churches, and surpasses many of them in symmetry and balance. It's really beautiful.

The Chysler Building was a masterpiece in its kind of architecture, and utilized elements which were not common in its time (such as steel façades), making it innovative.

The Petronas are glass-and-steel towers, and its relevance was mainly due to their size at the time of completion. Nowadays they are a symbol of the prominence of the Asian Tigers in the late 90s - early 2000s, but they have long been overshadowed by the new buildings in Asia, mainly in China and Dubai.

In my opinion, my favorite is the Woolworth, but comparing such three different constructions is totally pointless, and being angry that someone prefers one over the others is just disrespecting their opinion.

Exactly...

Woolworth
1913
Chrysler
1930
Petronas
1994

It is like comparing Elvis Presly to Britney Spears...
It's a matter of taste really...
