Every time I see this building in downtown Tulsa I cant help but be reminded of the World Trade Center Buildings. It is actually a 1/2 height version of the One World Trade Center, designed by the same architect. I wish I had a photo of the lobby inside them both for they are eerily similar. Although Tulsas version is but a "little sister" to one of the World Trade Center towers, she still stands proudly as the tallest building in the region, including Kansas City, St Louis, OKC, Little Rock, etc.

Transamerica vs Transtemple?

Hi Folks,

Here is another set of similar buildings but not quite in the normal sense. Check it out... A temple in Mysore India


and the Transamerica building in San Fransisco (by RicanGeek / Emilio Mercado)


Okay, maybe not so much...

Enjoy! Skywriter

Both were among the tallest buildings (#1 and 2 I think) by Mies Van De Rohe. They are certainly siblings if not exact twins.
