The drop in quality in KL from #1 to #2-5 is staggering.

The Arch for Hong Kong in top 5? Good call on Highcliff though. I'd probably go with BoC, HSBC, 2-IFC, ICC, OIE.

1. MARINA BAY SANDS

There are a lot different impressive buildings in Mexico City which look amazing but I chose the most important, tall and of course with a nice architecture

Torre Mayor



Centro Bursatil & Bolsa Mexicana de Valores (including the central small ball or thing)



St. Regis Hotel Ciudad de México


Residencial del Bosque


WTC México (70's that's why it looks weird lol)

I think people are afraid of posting pics on an already-saturated page. We should discuss which buildings posted are best, thereby assisting in the bump towards a fresh page =)

I actually kinda like Troika in Kuala Lumpur...

Dime, are all the other buildings besides Q1 renders?

Hilton and Soul are renders and aren't yet complete. Oracle, Circle on Cavill and Q1 are the real deal.

I see. It seems that Circle and Oracle both play with the balcony glazing to make the architecture look more coherent and smooth than it actually is.

So far IMO the highest quality projects are in Singapore, save for one shenton. The Sails is nice, but we have a smaller but better version in Vancouver Pics to come

Edit: actually, quality goes to London, and it'll get better with the Shard and 122 leadenhall

Ah ic. It just looks kinda sinister to me, for buildings in multiple cities to share some unidentified corporate logo, haha.

My favorite new highrise in Toronto (more like 10 stories of residential added on top of an office building)

155 Cumberland


My 2 favorite buildings in Toronto in one shot:

1 King West with Scotia Tower in background.
