Except all of those buildings were built AFTER the WTC was designed and was already under construction.

Are you really this ******* stupid in person?

Actually, it shows that people actually liked the WTC, and wanted buildings similar to it built in their cities. Petronas, on the other hand, don't have any buildings resembling it.

Oh, and don't get me wrong. I can appreciate the architecture of that part of the world; not just the Philippines. This is my favorite picture of the PTT.

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...
WTC known for its epic fall is just embarassing,and worst,WTC is considered as the ugly twins

Actually the twins were more well known before they fell than the PTT ever were. ''WTC is considered as the ugly twins." Maybe in your mind dumbass

I think the funniest thing is that while Americans are always called arrogant, you're going around accusing us all of home favoritism. I can count on 1 hand the number of Asian forumers I know who truly appreciate American architecture, while I can think of plenty of Americans who love Asian architecture, including myself. Last time I checked, it wasn't Americans who created multiple accounts for the supertalls world cup, but Asians. Not only were just a few made, but several hundred were made. You can claim we're home biased all you want, but from my perspective, it's quite the other way around. Last time I checked, Americans weren't going around accusing Asians of being biased for liking Petronas more than the WTC. Last time I checked, there weren't a ton of Americans going around calling the Petronas hideous and saying that people only vote for them because they're Asian. Last time I checked, Americans aren't going around using racial slurs. You really need to reconsider your previous statements.

By the way, the poll says "WTC Twin Towers vs. Petronas Twin Towers", not "My Country vs. America", which is why I actually voted Petronas.

IMHO, when you think about skyscrapers, the first thing that may spring to mind are tall boxes just like the WTC but when you see the Petronas Towers you immediately come to the realization that someone thought out of the "box" and that skyscrapers are not necessarily tall bland boxes but they can be extraordinarily original. If the WTC paved the way, Petronas pushed the envelope with regard to design.

You need to get your eyes checked, those buildings look nothing like the World Trade Center not in exterior design, nor size proportions. It's easy to just generalize styles but it makes you look uninformed in the process.
