my votes (x) and prediction (+)

Burj Khalifa (+,x) vs Willis Tower
Chrysler (+) vs Bank of China (x) [both are rather small and not dominating their skyline at all, i never thought they would come this far]
Two IFC vs Petronas (+,x)
Guangzhou IFC (x) vs Empire State Building (+)


Burj Khalifa (+,x) vs Chrysler
Petronas (+,x) vs Empire State Building [empire state building nearly lost against COC already, so we will see]

Burj Khalifa (+) vs Petronas (x)

My take is actually on Empire State Building. I think it deserves to win.

wish I could put my money on it somewhere

From now on its a bit harder, but I think obviously burj will take the first place, second I think may be the petronas, third esb and the last (but not least) chrysler.

It makes some people feel better to put the ESB and Chrysler's success entirely down to nostalgia. Some find it unthinkable that anyone could actually like them architecturally.

We'll see but I believe that still large group from those americans who voted for esb and chlysler will finally vote for the burj. It's just hard not to see that burj deserves to win this contest. Only extreme "patriotists" will stay with their national icons, and again I don't think there so much bruce alike voters around to make burj lose. And whats more I think 3rd and 4th places is whats esb and chrysler fully deserves. They are really great towers, its just that burj brakes so many records in so epic scale that I have no doubt the winner should be burj.

Overally I think results of this contest as for now are quite fair.

I'm sure the Burj will win for sure, I'd rather it didn't yeah, but there we go. For some reason no, there aren't a lot of people who don't love the Burj. I'm not a patriot, I'm not even American, and I have no special fondness for any country in particular, and I really don't think that anyone who isn't Russian has voted for something just because it's in their country.

It was inevitable, but I'm currently rather upset 2IFC is being resoundingly murdered by the Petronas Towers.
