I think a lot of people in this community will find Spanish egg much better than British. Including me.

Anyway, talking about best skyscrapers. If so many people believe ESB is best then MSU is best in Europe.

That's a point, there are some unfinished Dubai scrapers in there, why isn't every under construction supertall in there? The Shard, One Trade and numerous Chinese towers come to mind.

^ there are currently 52 completed buildings of 300 meters and up, which is the popular accepted definition of a supertall building. In order to have a tournament you need 64 entrees, so we added the top 12 buildings which are currently topped out, and hence nearing completion. Next time we do this tournament we should have an all completed top 64.

it's still architectural gem vs simple lego box.
of course there are towers who can beat the ESB, like BOC, petronas, BK etc. but CoC is definitely not one of them.

50 votes for CoC in about 5 minutes, now. Number of votes still don't match the list of members who voted.

If you think the Empire State Building is a simple box you're a mother****ing retard.

Seriously, this sort of thing rarely gets under my skin but I can't bear this critical mass of complete and udder stupidity any longer.

You autists wouldn't know architecture if it ****ed you in the ass.

I guess that might turn this thread on a "photo war". Moreover, all of these skyscrapers have their own threads on this subforum.

I did a recount of the vote and changed the number accordingly. The recount is based on the number of registered users who are logged as voters in this contest.

Not being funny but 30 St Mary axe is one of the best skyscrapers of this century so far, among with burj khalifa and various others.
