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.
Tacky, Unique and Wozer!! Make up your mind !!

I suspect that the "tacky" factor would reduce significantly if it were located in a more "classy" city

India Tower easily, beautiful and is going to put Mumbai on the world map if it isn't already, will also be the second tallest building in the world. Also I love the design, it is a gorgeous looking building, India's 21st century monument.

So many stunning towers, i'm glad it's multiple choice because I couldn't pick just one.

My votes are for
India Tower - insane and like it's from another planet
1 World Trade Centre - Refined whilst being bold
2 World Trade Centre - I really like how the structure appears to be 4 separate columns and the top is beautiful and somehow has soul
Mercury City Tower - Daring colored cladding and striking design which will make it stand out from the other striking buildings in the Moscow IBD
3 World Trade Centre - I love Hi-tech architecture this is busy yet still fresh
Sino-Steal Tower - The interior looks beautifully minimal and futuristic
Samsung Park 1 - again I love hi-tech architecture and this particular one looks so modern and detailed
