And the other (which was ultimately the winner and is currently awaiting approval from the New South Wales Government) is by Lend Lease/Lord Richard Rogers;

The Lend Lease/Lord Richard Rogers proposal, of course. Imponent.

those buildings could be in China, Canada, or in a bad tasted part of Europe.

I would like to see something more australian if that's possible.

Richard Rogers, because:
- It is a better way of cityplanning
- the designs are much more inspiring
- the towers have a stronger identity

When i visit Sydney in the future. I cenrtainly would visit this new Richard Rogers area (a must visit attraction), while the Norman Foster is so anonymous i wouldn't even recognize it.

What do you define as something more Australia, in terms of building? I don't think that it is possible.

Why is the proposal better suited to Hong Kong than Sydney?

Richard Rogers. The Foster proposal is not as well-integrated and the tower podiums are poorly-scaled and boring. I also don't like the attempt to make the tower designs varied for the sake of variation. Masterplans that pretend to be something it's not always end up tacky.

I prefer the Brookfield Multiplex/Norman Foster design! Looks more iconic ...

Both seem extraordinarily generic, or is that just me?

Just build the damn thing people!

Having lived in Sydney for six years ... and I love it ... but the skyline bores me senseless
