I voted for Petronas Tower for its beautiful architecture. WTC is is too plain and boring and quite ugly actually but that's my opinion. It's not what I call elegant and good simplicity.

I don't think so, it looks so 1995.

I still think that one part of on tower should have been a hotel, imagine with a suite on a full top floor, and a sky bar lounge.

You have to witness the Petronas towers up close to really appreciate the wonderful design. They are amazingly light during the day and at night when lit up are just like crystal. And the double sided view from the sky bridge is breath taking. In fact when I visited there once I was inspired to visit a beautiful mosque that I saw off in the distance.

I do not understand this kinde of taste, so you like boxy, 70's style, masive buildings, maybe brutalism style? YES?
