Interesting design, yes. But unlike the tower of Pisa which has a base that IS actually leaning this structure has a base that is perpendicular to the ground. Thus it isn't really leaning.

It is more of an optical allusion design that suggests a lean but is more closely related to a partial spiral.

It is still a beautiful sight to behold but I think the "Official" designation of it being the most leaning manmade structure is a minomer.

Regardless, your pics are superb.
