Art Deco can't be beat. The style was pretty much invented for the skyscraper.

neo gothic style is really sharp and imposing and adds some elegance and characther to a place.

then i would go for the art-deco style, is very powerful aswell

I don't like neo-gothic, it is just too chaotic. Expecially those old churches look like giant dripping candles.

Post modernism is the best!

Here some examples from my town

well... I love the gothic movement, because is that kind of architecture that can make u cry!!! so... i'm in love too with the neogothic movement

La Sainte-Chapelle, Paris... XIII century... the most beautiful and perfect gothic temple in the world! can u imagine the sensation of being in that place???!

and... I think that the sears tower is not a good example of the modern movement... maybe this one would be a good one

Some of the "Neo-Classical" examples above are actually Beaux Arts buildings, which I love. I voted for Deconstructivism because it's the most vital architectural movement today and will define so much of what gets built in this century.

I love modern, but find myself hating 75% of post-modern architecture.

This poll is incomplete, I miss a lot of architectual styles.
Greek, Roman, Romanesque, Renaissance, Neostyle (Neo-classic Neo-Gothic etc.), Art nouveau, De Stijl and Structuralism.

A few examples:
Greek:


Romanesque


Art Nouveau:


De Stijl:


Structuralism:


My favourites are: Early Modern, Art Nouveau and Renaissance architecture.
Or did I have to choose from the named styles in the poll?

Yeah, I know there are styles not mentioned in the poll. The idea is to choose from the poll styles.
Then, if the topic goes on, I will create another one with other stlyes like romanesque.

I was torn between neo gothic and art deco, but I had to go with neo gothic. Much more impressive for that era, and the architecture is stunning.
