I'm American; but I have to say in honesty that the Petronas Tower are 10 times nicer.

The truth is, PTT would look sooo out of place in New York, and vice versa for WTC in Kuala Lumpur.

I prefer WTC, though.

because the influence on architecture... it "asian" look make it so special, suitable in any city in asia. in dubai,taipei,singapore,beijing,jakarta,bangkok and even istanbul.

otherwise


technically modern and international architecture should be easy on everywhere, but if wtc is located in tokyo,paris,dubai,rio,i guess i know what people will react about it..

why should we ignore the old WTC? it's apart of NYC's history, the city's 3rd and 4th supertalls, the largest twin towers to exist.

And this thread is to share opinions on the only two sets of supertall twin towers to exist.

Whole complex vs. one tower wouldnt make much sense. Would have to compare petronas to entire wtc complex. In which case the new wtc complex is much more modern in appearance to petronas and would beat it handily.

The whole point of this thread is to compare the old WTC to PTT because they're both a set of Twins. 1WTC is irrelevant.

Don't bother. They're gonna say "but the pollz, ptt izz winning!!" there's no use in even arguing about which one is better. We all know which one is recognized as THE twin towers.

Petronas did not win the illuminated cup, the flame towers won vs the chrysler. The willis tower beat the WTC. Get your facts straight.

When anyone says "the twin towers" everyone immediatly thinks of the WTC unless they are Malyasian.

We would have to do a poll for the whole world to get a proper result, and the WTC would win that.
