ABSOLUT is amazing. But I agree the glass could have been better but it's definitely awesome in itself

Another twin tower I like from NYC

World Trade Center, obviously!
I also like those diagonal towers in Madrid.
Soon to be built is Hermitage Plaza in La Defence, which I also like.

New York's World Trade Center is still the best that ever was. I'll tip my hat to the Petronas towers, but the World Trade Center but a splash in its cities skyline like no other building.

Along with Time Warner Center, New york has some other good looking twins.
