OUB!!! How many skyscrapers on this planet can pull of 70% cladding, 30% glass so well?
Anyway, its a perfect geometric masterpiece which constantly changes its profile from every angle. Height does not matter, being the 2nd shortest amoung the 5, it still commands the most attention. A true Asian Skyscraper.

OUB. It's simple and elegant. The way the windows are grouped and the shiny facade remind me of a microchip, same as with Tokyo City Hall. I visited this building in person last year and was impressed at how it looked from beneath.

Man this one's a very tough choice.. but I'm going for OUB because of its uniqueness, and cant forget i was lying down in Raffles Place staring up at it for 10 minutes

Apparently the One Liberty Place tower is quite admired - check out this Chinese proposal: Zhongtian International Mansion!
