the emirate towers are just plain ugly, and not tall at all

w/ respect
the WTC towers were too plain, but extremely tall

Petronas towers gets my nomination
no question about it

no other tower can match Petronas KL, but the wtc would be my second choice

I am not being rude or anything but World Trade Center in NY did look hideous, looked like two very giant boxes.

I think my fav is petronas in KL and then emirates in dubai and then Lippo Center in HK.

Everybody is entitled to their opinion, so I don't think you are being rude.

WTC for size. Petronas for beauty and also size.

Overall, I give the edge to Petronas.

I think the title as best twin towers should go to the buldings that were known around the world simply as The Twin Towers. While their subtle beauty may have been a bit inaccessible for the close minded, no one can deny their iconicity. What a tremendous structure!




Although, of all the copycats, I am most impressed with th Lippo Towers. Those are pretty neat.
