Discuss: Best Twin Towers

What do you think are the best twin towers in the world?

My favorites are the original One World Trade Center and Two World Trade Center in New York, and the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur.

I guess indeed the Petronas would win on this one... i think there's no other twin tower in the world to-date that is as distinguishable as the Petronas..

same two favourites!

WTC for being the first supertall twins

Petronas for being unique, concrete inside (the support frames n the columns) n steels (of coz with glasses) outside ( the facade). mostly supertalls now (and then), prefer the cheaper opposite option, steels inside n concrete (worse! only glasses) outside

I really like the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur. There is eastern beauty in them!

Not quite on the same level as the Petronas towers or the former WTC, and I'm not sure they qualify as twin towers (they are more siblings than twins), but I've always had a soft spot for HK's Lippo centre:

Chicago Marina Towers

How could these two be overlooked! Another timeless pair of structures. Though not quite the same, when I first saw Petronas Towers, this pair immediately came to mind..

I've heard those are the tallest buildings in America located in a suburban city. Quite impressive!
