Chrysler all the way! Completed in 1930 and we are still talking about it, what what what? BK is a trend easily eclipsed by a taller and bigger building that will be built and completed tomorrow.

Why would you when Asia got into the iconic skyscraper bandwagon only during the past 20- 25 years?

almost 80 years old, your point? The age of a skyscraper shouldn't be a deciding factor.
Again, we can't know about the future. My point was that the Chrysler is still an icon 80 years after it was built. It may not be an icon in 80 more years, but I don't know that the Burj will be either.

Well the World Wonders is starting on the 7th, so that makes me think there's only 1 day for each of these votes, but I'm not sure as the first semi is still going.

That makes it even easier to choose the deco marvels. I just don't find the particular glass cladding on those towers to be that great. there are modern towers with far nicer cladding.

To be sincere with everybody here, I don't like the cross bridge in Petronas Twin Towers.

If I'm being sincere, I think I'd like one Petronas Tower far more than the pair as they stand.

for me its:

Petronas
Burj
ESB
Chrysler

for the last 4 chrysler is the only one surprising to be there for me though. like CoC i never thought it would be so much liked. and it winning against burj seems like a joke for me, but well at least my two currently favorite buildings are still in the contest

Burj has one of the best cladding out there.. maybe not true for patrona, but patrona is stunning during night time!

It's fairly nice. Nicer than the SWFC for me, but a single Petronas would do it for me more then Jin Mao.

Well I disagree. I'd prefer a little more transparency, and maybe some variation in the colour. It just seems too flat and uniform for me. Petronas is pretty damn nice looking at night though yeah.
