It should be said that these were never serious proposals.

Browsing through this thread, I'm actually glad some, if not, most of these proposals got the boot

Well, actually the most of the projects were inadequate. I'm really glad that they are cancelled. With maybe only few exceptions (e.g. Signal Tower in Paris looks just in the right place).

As for the "skyscraper" proposed for Brussells..it is total stupidity ( I mean the place there it was supposed to be built).

I like the Illinois, it's a beautiful building but I wouldn't call it my favourite. My favourites are the Trump Twin Towers 2, the Chicago World Trade Center and the Schaumburg Space Needle

Be glad that the Russian skyscraper and the one in Chicago will never be built. The one in Chicago looks like a long, slim tampon and the Russian one looks like one of those oppressive pyramids from 1984.
