I was always interested in my local buildings when i was small so my mum bought me a childs book of skyscrapers. In it were cartoons of the (then) Sears Tower, Transamerica Pyramid, Flatiron Building and the typical New York buildings which got me interested in skyscrapers in general.





Oh and the 'fictonal' skyscrapers of Sim City 4 helped a load too

My interest started when I first visited Rotterdam and saw this tower (Delftse poort) under construction, together with the adjacent towers.

For me, it's when i first went to Makati City... so basically, it's not just one building but the entire CBD.
