I was at the Toronto airport and saw those towers from the window, and the shapes seemed surreal. I had to go to this site to understand their weird shapes!

Capital Square or Capsquare twin towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia are exactly a nonidentical twin
due to a design change to the west tower that was built later after the east tower.

Initial planning (focusing the tall twin tower) :



They built the east tower:


(photo by James Geovanni)


The design of the twin changed and this is the new render:



and finally the west tower was built and the unequal twin formed


(time lapse photo by Logorithm)

Some photos of the unequal twin..

Seems like a lot of the twins in this thread are fraternal...
