Why sorry, we should thank you for reposting pictures on the chinese forums to here
In fact, looking at the above photo, the different orientation highlights each building in a more unique way from any vantage point.

I think it's the angle of the vantage point and the fact that a rectangular tower looks slimmer on one side than the other.

One of them is more octagonal from the satellite shots and the shape is elongated.

So they cant be classified as twin towers right? I find the mall abit similar to ION Orchard in Singapore just that the interiors or IFC is much more nicer!

"Twin" in what sense though? Do you have a satellite or rendering that shows the other's shape?

Google Maps' satellite is not showing the full form of the 2nd tower. Both don't look squarish to me.

They can be considered twins. Just not identical twins. They complement each other by clearly sharing similar cladding and shape, "similar" being the important word.

Having seen them in real life, they don't look that squarish at all.
