The WTC, it has that "don't mess with us" sort of solid brutalism look, like it's not afraid of anything

Really? Read his post again. He already stated in the previous page he voted for PTT.

I find this difficult for both set of twin are different in design, but i'd go with the WTC towers for height and sheer size.


I like big things.

I go with Petronas Towers.
They fit pretty well with the far east design and they are just beautiful.
Twin Towers from WTC were an icon for NY but their design was just awful - they didn't fit the style of the city at all and they didn't even make it with style. On top of that they had those awful thin windows that were 70 cm or something in width ...

I think the petronas are beautiful, but my vote goes to the twins, because everyone knew the twins, they were just so symbolic like a boss, like seemed like if u looked at them they were badass, really sad to see them gone, i feel the twins paved the way for the excessively tall buildings we have now, like the burj etc, i think those are just way to tall and stupid, but my votes for the wtc

WTC for it's dominance and iconic status
I'm also not a fan of the Petronas Towers because of those cheating spires...they make the towers "officially" taller than they really are.

comparing the height doesnt make sense at all. if wtc towers were twice higher than PTT or as tall as burj khalifa, im still voting for PTT.

Well we are comparing skyscraper towers, one of the attractiveness of such buildings is their height and size so i don't see how it doesn't make sense.

im not surprised you'd vote for it considering, says you live there, but thats like saying if the petronas were 5 feet tall that you shouldn't compare the height to something 1000 feet tall..

to me, neither are architecturally appealing, so i voted for the WTC's sheer size.
I don't like the PT's stainless steel facade, and Pelli has made some better designs.
