Skyscraper types and family trees

(Uh, on the note: I totally forgot there is another thread in this subforum, 'Skyscraper dictionary' thread. This two are simmilar, but this thread is not about taxonomy nor finding new names or ideas for skyscrapers classification. This thread solely purpose is to embed existing well known skyscraper types into one big family tree which would include updating graphical map in the opening post. There might be some overlap and confusion between this two threads. So, I wouldn't mind if this thread were to be moved somewhere else for that reason...)

How to properly classify skyscrapers?

Q: Can WTC1 be considered as Gran Torre Santiago clone, e.i. are this two skyscrapers of the same type?

^...could you find a little bit more on those types. I am not sure first two are the same as third one. First one is postmodern architecture or something...

How about originals & copies? There's already one, so why not another?
Edit: the building that you have listed as a Cesar Pelli copycat was designed by Pelli. It's on Emporis.com: https://www.emporis.com/buildings/10...ey-city-nj-usa

Original: Key Tower, Cleveland
