Great, thanks. Here is the Top 16 rankes by votes. If skyscrapers received the same number of votes, they are ranked by height.

Bank of China Tower, HK - 12
30 St Mary Axe, London - 10
International Finance centre - 8
Flatiron Building - 7
Transamerica Pyramide - 5
Moscow State University - 5
Jin Mao Tower - 4
Burj al Arab - 4
Trump New York - 4
MesseTurm, Frankfurt - 4
Wells Fargo Center, Minneapolis - 4
One Canada Square, London - 3
Torre Mayor, Mexico City - 3
GE Buiding, NYC. - 2
Commerzbank Tower - 2
Seagram Building, NY - 2

Out of the 13 skyscrapers which received 2 votes, I selected 3 (my votes) which are the last 3 in the list, so we have 16 nominees.

Here is the tournament line-up. Voting starts this Friday.

My nomination, Beetham Tower in Manchester. The first true skyscraper I saw in person, I used to think it was actually named Beacon Tower because of the way it stands on it's own -

Built in 2006, so just about (sky) scrapes in!
