I hope there will be a new contest next year. It will be interesting to see the difference with all the new skyscrapers by that time.

Anyway, congratulations to Chrysler Building and thank you to the mods that organized everything!

Eh not really. Almost half does not.

Anyway congrats to the Chrysler Building. My favorite by far was Bank of China Tower.

Indeed, congratulations and thanks are due to Chrysler and Jan. . But there really was never a loser in this competition. So many awsome buildings were nominated, it was sad to see some of them loose out. But then again, the winners were/are also very good and beautiful designs.

It ended with 2 of the 4 favorite buildings of mine in the final. And it is so close in the end, that we actually can say we have 2 winners and for sure no losers.

But, by the numbers Chrysler has won, so again, congratulations are in place, even though I voted Petronas because of their significane to the country they are build in where Chrysler was outdone (in height) by the ESB about 1 year after is was completed.

Still I can live with this result very comfortably. .

I thought the acceptance speech was bit over-the-top, myself.

I thought about this today too. I reminded myself Russian Tower, IMO most beautiful never build tower.
