I voted fot WTC. I'm sure more people will vote for them because they define the word skyscraper. How lovely they were. One of the reasons why I started to like the tall buildings.

WTC was massive and iconic, so in that front i would vote for WTC. I also have to say that WTC looked WAY better in real life. One of the couple of towers i have seen that look so massive and impressive standing right next to it and looking up. I'm always up for simple, minimalistic designs and don't consider most of the busy Asian towers to be much. Though Petronas Tower is not just best looking twin tower, but one of the best looking towers out there imo.

My vote has to go for Petronas, even as i would rather not vote at all.

I have visited WTC as a kid, only seen Petronas from the ground.

I am from Malaysia and I always get amazed by Petronas Twin Tower everytime i pass by. You will get to know the feeling of how massive it is and the unique design of it. I always tell my friends that malaysia got 2 corn in the middle of the city :P

I've never got a chance to see WTC and now it is impossible to see it anymore. But I can imagine how massive it is especially how the pillar from the ground keep going up. (I like the design)

Looks too much like a pagoda which, IMO, shouln't be a supertall structure.

Other ones with such a shape pagoda like shape are Jin Mao and Taipei 101
