Or rather, I wonder if any of the Dubai skyscrapers are gonna be important in 2090...

Bare in mind, I just said 'I wonder', no one can have any idea about any aspect of the world 80 years from now.

omg wtf lol, Chrysler was very avant-garde for its age, I voted for it vs BoC, but I'm honestly quite perplexed at how it's beating the Burj atm.

In my opinion, nothing under 550m even has a chance of beating Burj because the height differential is simply too large. Totally don't understand why so many people hate on the Burj; how can anyone deny that it is a very unique piece of architecture?

I acknowledge that different people have different tastes, but this is skyscrapercity after all, and an integral component to any skyscraper is its height (hence the derivation of the name).

And will Chrysler, or any skyscraper around today be important 80 years from now? I doubt it. We'll have so many more by then...

almost 80 years old, your point? The age of a skyscraper shouldn't be a deciding factor.

If people voted based on height, there wouldn't be any point in the contest. We know which buildings are taller than others. It's a factor of course, but it's not the deciding factor for everyone.

I voted for it against BoC too but I regret it.

There are no factors that should or shouldn't be considered here; it's a popularity contest. And so far, Chrysler is proving to be the most popular.

Most of you would be immediately laughed out of any serious discussion of architecture in real life, so be glad there are no objective criteria required for this contest.

Totally agree -_- the size difference between the Burj and Chrysler in this case just outweighs all other factors.. at least i guess on this forum.
