The second one looks like the Mischek Tower in my city. (Not really beautiful but 110 Metres high is not bad )
Mischek:


The second one:

A little bit at least, I think, if you think on structure.

I mean, look at them. They are just 2 pieces of grey concrete!!! , though a cristal cladding would have freshen them, but still they would be 2 giant crystal boxes.
Hey Chaiko, the twin towers are the bests buildings! all the towers are made of concrete everybody think that but look them carefully and you will see that the outside structure is made of glass and metal bars, all the towers are of concrete in the main structure, but not in the outside structure including the twin towers, so be intelligent

The Twin Towers didn't have a concrete core. Their cores were only out of steel beams

Exactly... If someone calls a building widely regarded as beautiful ugly, is he a troll?
