2 Petronas Towers (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

It's Malaysian although the architect is Italian. I would say its one of the most recognizable building in Malaysia. Hands down

It's the World Most Iconic Structure! - Zulsky97

The rocking tower with a bridge in the middle

Petronas Twin Towers Sky walk is awesome

3 Burj Khalifa (Dubai, United Arab Emirates) Burj Khalifa (Dubai, United Arab Emirates)

It is currently the tallest in the world, since 2007 I believe, but a building in Saudi Arabia is going to be taller within the next few years. The Empire State Building has been passed by many buildings around the world, but considering it was built in the early 30s, 100+ stories was quite an accomplishment for the time period, in fact, it would remain the tallest in the world for nearly 40 years, that's why it's such a popular building.

Currently (2011) the tallest building in the world, at 828 m (2,717 ft). - MatrixGuy

This is the talleST building in the whole wide woRLD! It should be more popular than Empire State Building in NewYORK dir

The biggest building I seen
