Petronas Twin-Towers for me It's still beautiful and modern. A brilliant piece of Architecture and Engineering

In Memoriam...

This international icon once co-existed with today's most popular (Petronas) twosomes and deserves honorable - if posthumous - mention. While not as architectually intricate as their Malaysian counterpart, they were elegant by virtue of their simplicity.

World Trade Center


The conspicuous absence of these twin towers casts a shadow over Manhattan

Of course these towers deserve to be in this topic. However, the design was terrible, i always hated this modernist crap. The new towers of the wtc are so much better.

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Cliché aside, care to post an artist's rendering of the new WTC towers to illustrate your point?

While these may be sibling towers, their height disparity disqualifies them as twin towers. Awesome design, however.
