The best unequal twin would be a twin consisting of a skyscraper and a chimney, a free-standing or guyed tower. Does someone know such a twin?

The Azrieli Towers in Tel Aviv are not equal in height nor shape, though they aren't twins.

Woah- I never knew there was a shorter tower; I've only ever noticed the bigger one. Cool.

Technically, the Azrieli Ctr Towers are not twins, but they were one the third one was only a quarter of the way finished for three years.
