Pretty sure the TD Centre in Toronto is the tallest by Mies. He also designed a three-plex of residential towers in Montreal similar to his residential towers in Chicago.

Here's the twin I was thinking of to the other building I posted, 181 West Madison, Chicago.

Ningxia Bank Building - http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=99401

Here's a building in Yinchuan China. I don't think I need to post a photo of the building it's design is based on.

I think this is a nice post-modern interpretation of ESB

I am surprised that no one realize these twins.

Bank of America Corporate Center in Charlotte.


International Finance Center in Hong Kong.

You're joking right. Those two are SO similar that they were supposed to be the first buildings to come to mind. I mean the top's are sorta (maybe {maybe not}) seldom similar.

I don't want to be rude but it seems that China likes implementing American skyscraper designs on their own buildings. Either Skidmore, Owings and Merrill are responsible for most of these examples,or Asia is trying to copy or suceed the U.S. in almost everything possible.

Doesn't the Deutsche Bank Twin Towers in Frankfurt, Germany sort of remind you of two pairs of twins.



Hell yeah it does, and it is similar to the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur.



And the extremely famous Twin Towers of the World Trade Center that existed in New York City.
