Seriously guys. Don't post anything more hideous. Let's make this page better than the last one...

I read http://www.archdaily.com/ every day because they only feature beautiful and architecturally innovative projects

LOL. taipei 101 seriously is the most beautiful building in the world, though. i know of no other skyscraper that is entirely blue in color, plus it manages to utilize pagoda-style Chinese architecture in the tallest building in the world and it gets away with it, remarkable accomplishment.

That does not mean its beautiful.

Wow, entirely blue skyscraper... I can't wait for entirely pink one. I think THAT would be some accomplishment

I would have to agree a little bit with jasoiweo here. Taipei 101 is definitely not an ugly building. I like the way they use the pagoda style in a modern way. Maybe not the most beautiful building in the world, but in the top 10 for skyscrapers at least.

Taipei 101 isn't ugly but it isn't beautiful as well. It's kinda new and very tall but it doesn't have that futuristic feeling that many other new skyscrapers have. Furthermore, it does not fit it's environment which is hundreds of meters below it and generally consists of low building which does not make it look as good as skyscrapers in Dubai, NY or HK.

^ Same with all of Gehry's work. Pictures don't really do them justice.

Anyway, my vote goes to Q1. There is something about this building that strikes me. Maybe it's location, it's color, or it's cool but simple name but Q1 is just amazing to me. Not many skyscrapers make me happy to look at but Q1 does.

There are tons that are all blue and I haven't been there in person, but TP101 doesn't look like it's all blue. I'm confused. Here's one that's all blue and more beautiful (in my opinion only)

taipei is stunningly blue though, unlike that tower you posted that is glass-colored.

The largest stone building in the world.
