Guangzhou Chow Tai Fook should be made same height as the IFC. A balanced skyline would look better, making room for more buildings in the furure.

- Pingan International Finance Centre - Powerful
- Shanghai Tower - work of art
- Kingkey Finance Tower - love the tapering sides and the "capsule" on top
- 2 WTC - mi favourite of the complex. The diamons on top give it a uniqueness.

Shanghai Tower is GREAT!

2WTC is really interesting...much more so than 1WTC

Shenzhen Pingan IFC is a favourite too, it really soars!

Pentominium is the only one I like from Dubai.

India Tower is one interesting design and amazing looking tower.....Along with that Shanghai Tower ...Sino-Steel tower and WTC 1& 2 ....are my favorites .....

The one's in Dubai are really ugly and boring designs....

In this poll I don't see real contenders to the Shanghai Tower. With all due respect to 2WTC (which is the second most popular option so far) I think there must be a fair share of bias among those who choose it over designs like ST which are on a whole different level of sophistication by any means.

India Tower is extremely interesting though and I would probably give it a No.2. I think the design is a little tacky in a way but it still looks very unique and definitely is a wowzer.
