Both being tall objects, a portrait orientation seemed the better choice. Had the framing been straight the two elements would have been side by side and each would then be pressed to the outside edges of the photo (building to the left, statue to the right). To avoid crowding the edges I would have had to shoot the scene a little wider, making the subject smaller in the frame. By using a Dutch angle I changed the composition from a side by side to that of a top over bottom, fitting a portrait orientation better.
I've noticed I tend to prefer filling the frame with a subject.
