i do really hope this thread is closed or at least the poll is. Each of the building represents their unique value to the country they stand (or stood) on.
WTC for example is everything about New York and US as a whole. It represented US economy, capitalism, wealth, prosper nation. PETRONAS towers signifies the emergent of new nation, young nation in this world. It sorts of saying that Malaysia is now ready for the world.

It doesn't feel right to compare them with one of them is not there anymore although the initial purpose of this polls i believe just how people favour their twin towers. Now with WTC carry with it thousands of lives with it, this thing could get a bit emotional.

WTC indeed pave way for PETRONAS twin towers. Now with WTC is gone, PETRONAS is the twin towers for our generation today. WTC is remembered always. God bless the people who died together with the WTC....

I voted for WTC. The first, the true supertall twins and the most impressive towers I've ever seen.

Damn.

Voted for WTC Twins Only the Willis Tower is more beautiful than the old WTC Twins
On the other hand Petronas Twins are ugly in my opinion

Amazing Structure! It's shape is malaysia traditional architecture! I VOTE FOR PETRONAS TWIN TOWER A.K.A KLCC. Klcc is a modern intrepetation of traditional architecture while WTC is just a Boring Boxing building like other normal building.
