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

Just forget about WTC. It doesn't exist in the world anymore. There is no twin towers (WTC) in New York. It will be replaced with another building If i'm not mistaken freedom tower. There is no point to compare between these both towers as WTC is no longer in this world. It is something you want to compare Michael Jackson and BRuno Mars. Sorry to say that. But for me PTT is more attractive.

Not really, the term Twin Towers belongs to the world trade center, just look it up on the web.

Maybe there aren't no longer twin towers as wtc in NY, but there is definitely a wtc.

What competition is that? I was talking about the one on one competition here, the one where everyone votes. The results I gave you are for that.
Also yes twin towers are used in majority to refer to the Wtc, fact.

The hell are you on about? The world trade center has existed since its construction even if the twins were destroyed. The world trade center refers to the whole complex, not just the twins. The new buildings are still the world trade center. The term freedom tower no longer exists, its 1 WTC.
If you prefer the Ptt that's fine

I am talking about these. The ones done by the site itself, last year. It will give a lot more accurate results than one done in 2005 which had a lot less people voting.

Honestly, you can go screw yourself.

Just cause they don't exist doesn't mean we forget the structures and the people that worked in them and how they contributed to the city.

No body gives a shit about some internet poll, only you. If it makes you feel better to believe the Petronas Towers are better at night, go right ahead believe that.. I've got nothing against them. But don't twist the facts buddy.

When "Twin Towers" were uttered, they always referred to the World Trade Center in New York. And the the WTC had nearly 30 years on your Petronas Towers.

hahaha, "official poll", this guy HAS to be trolling.

About 100 people voted in a poll few had heard of and even less cared about

I personally find the WTC more epic and grander in stature, love the 70's style architecture and how it imposed itself on the city.

To each his own however, but to say that petronas are undoubtedly recognised as THE "twin towers" is just silly talk.

For instance, I guarantee that most people in my part of the world never even heard of the petronas twins, while WTC is common knowledge. Granted that 9/11 has a lot to do with that, but it doesn't change the fact that WTC is what people naturally refer to as the twin towers...

I prefer Petronas.

WTC was maybe iconic, but too many (not only)American skyscrapers look like thin big boxes of milk, which makes Petronas twin towers more unorthodox and lively.
I would love to see a skyscraper in Gaudi's style though. Something looking that organic would be awesome.

Not really at this scale. No other building went this high while keeping the same width throughout. More complex buildings are becoming very prevalent nowadays, and if you look at Dubai, it doesn't necessarily mean they're better.
