2IFC is one of my favorites. Plus it's hard to compare a rendering with a completed building.

They're both rather boring to me. There really isn't anything visually stimulating to the towers themselves, other than the roofline of WTC-2 and the taper of Two IFC - which, I might add, looks a bit like a giant tampon. Sorry if that's an uncouth thing to say, but I don't know how else to describe it. Nevertheless, if I had to choose, I'd pick Two IFC simply because the sides of the tower aren't monotonously straight.

2 IFC really has nothing going for it but height. Never found it to be an attractive building... Really nothing special.

Tower 2 edges above it because I like the way it peaks and it looks like the facade will be a little nicer than 2IFC.

Both are beautiful and I really can't decide. Skyscraper vs. polls seem sort of silly. These are two of my favorite designs of the century thus far. Has anybody else noticed that 2IFC does look a bit like a loaf of bread, though?

2IFC is graceful and subtle.

WTC2 is a big hulking scream for attention.

2IFC wins by a landslide.
