Great! Please ask him to tell the people in charge of decisions that the West Tower wants a twin! An identical twin!!

Identical twins would be aesthetically stunning, but I don't think it's that important. We are just too used to expect that visual effect and now we miss it. Same with SWFC hole, most people thought that the trapezoidal hole looked weird at first. Now almost nobody miss the former shape.

We should also remember that most proposals for Guangzhou twins weren't identical towers, most had different heights or slightly different shapes. Some were even totally different from each other.

I love the first proposal you posted ("fang'an" two), yet I prefer the design that was finally approved, and I don't understand why they would change it - there is a reason why it was approved after all. Yes the developer has changed, so what? I repeat myself, but... xerox the effing blueprints for them!

I think the chosen design is the neatest of them all, and therefore that was probably the reason why it was chosen. The others were maybe too creative for gz and therefore werent chosen. But having said that, if they were to change the design for the east tower, then there wasn't really a point in chosing such city plans.
