This is easily my favorite International-style skyscraper. That darker gray section on the side does a lot. I wish more International-style buildings would've followed that example.

The Seagram Building is one of the few others that I don't hate.

I also love the John Hancock Center in Chicago, if that counts as International style. The X-shaped structural supports on the outside help the monotonous look of the building a lot.

The Aon Center in Chicago might be my least favorite building in existence. It's hideous.

Baťa's Skyscraper, Zlin, Czechia (1938)

Baťa's skycraper by Martin Hapl, on Flickr

There are better images shot in the 1960s but they are sadly on Flickr, and I can't post them.
