3 out of 5 from US and only one from Asia …. What happened? Still Trump wins. That is already an icon and this is not even the best shot of it.

Aqua...

...St. Regis, not a bad looking building but it doesn't even belong in the top 25. It's sad to see that a lot of my country men are getting carried away by nationalism.

Aqua sucks balls. Looks interesting close by, but plain ugly from the distance.

Wow, I'm kind of surprised that the majority has voted for that Aqua building, it seems to me that who ever chose that building has little foresight. The Aqua is just the kind of building to shock and impress everyone that sees it for the first couple years after it is built - and in a good way - though after a couple decades everyone seems to come to their senses and realize how atrocious it was to begin with. Those types of buildings are more fads than anything - remember that "brutalism" phase of architecture? From a prosperity point of view I would say that the "Bank of America Tower" is the best choice, for the simple reason that the St. Regis and China WTC are boring and the Trump Tower looks like a spruced up version of a building already standing in Chicago (the Sears Tower).

Second thought I change my mind (not about Aqua being hideous though, because it is), about St. Regis being ugly, I'm going to rank them:
1) Bank of America
2) St. Regis
3) Trump - I feel like it's just a copy cat of the Sears Tower rather than a building just trying to fit in the city skyline.
4) China WTC
5) Aqua - this building has white elephant written all over it a few years down the road.

For me, I think AQUA Bldg. is the finest amongst the rest. Why? It is because I like the structural design. I think the architect made that plan with a rationale in its stupendous.
