Same as you Turbosnail, but I also like the Swiss Re and Commerzbank Tower by Foster. They have lots of natural lighting inside, are environmentally friendly and also have wacky and distinctive designs.

Those dancing twisting towers look cool! I see that the middle one needed a "spine" for the elevators/support (seen in other renderings). It kind of spoils the effect though.
