i'm sure you can barely find this kind of state of art iconic building in anywhere around the globe and it is a well known symbol of the powerful financial centre
Still trolling hard I see.

Gherkin is over-rated. Cladding isnt very good and the black top is awful. Its hardly the best building in the World. Points for it not being a box, though.

My favourite skyscrapers are New Yorks Art-Deco ones, Petronas Twins and the new skyscrapers of China (ie Jin Mao, Shanghai WFC and the still U/C Shanghai Tower which could well become the best looking skyscraper in the World) as well as The Shard and Flame Towers.

Interesting choice. I've never really thought of Ryugyong in terms of my favourite, but it does warrant consideration. It's a very impressive structure and Pyongyang is one of the few places on earth that suits it.
