1. Aqua. I'm captivated by its uniqueness.
2. Bank of America. I think it's very elegant and will age well.
3. St. Regis. I really like the cylinder-shaped form of the building. Detractores, adios.

4. Trump International Hotel & Tower. Sorry but no... It honestly looks like a syringe
5. China WTC III. OMG how Original! what a waste of time, money, materials, etc...

Aqua is a boring skyscraper within cool shell whilst boa tower is a cool building! It was featured on The Discovery Channel the other week, great building. It's a shame so many people on here are distracted by a few wavy floor plates. And I think 'which is better?' polls featuring one sole image of each building's exterior is pointless.

Architecture is inhabited three dimensional space, not a single flat photograph.

1. BofA (I like the materials used, the scale, the sleek lines, and the spire...spire works well with the building, also the building fits in well with the surrounding environment)
2. Trump (really a close close second, it was difficult)
3. WTC3 (eh, not my favorite)
4. Aqua (just for being different, but its scale is not my cup of tea and what's beneath those waves? not much)
5. Torre Libertad (just doesn't do much for me)

Only these 5? Burj Dubai wasn't inaugurated in 2009, or it was in 2008?

Aqua is a truly unique work of architecture.
This is the main reason why I vote for Aqua, but I like most Tore Libertad ( Tower of freedom) from Mexico (most consonant constructions)...

I voted Bank of America, Trump tower looks similar in design to the Sears tower which is in the same city, and aqua losses it's cool perspective if your not under it. I read Bank of America is a very efficient tower due to the green technology incorporated in its construction. CWTC looks bland but St. Regis is definitely last in my list is way to short to compete with the others.

For me it's number 1 - WTC 3

it's like a return to the classic modernistic style, but with some freshness involved.
