Good to see plants being used so effectively in those designs. It' adds a nice bit of natural colour.

I can never get enough of this magnificent building:

Wells Fargo Bank Plaza, Houston

Just a stunningly simple tower designs with curved corners and the most wonderful glass façade, very clean but very bold!

Ok, I know that this is not the biggest or the best, but this building, The Sony Building, New York City, formerly known at the AT&T Building, designed by Phillip Johnston and build in 1982, has a stunning façade!

Hard to believe this is now 34 years old, but this façade turned architecture on it's head! In the early 80's, most skyscraper were being built with a minimalist façade of glass and steel, but then this went up! 37 stories of "Post Modern Glory".

Critics likened it a gigantic piece of furniture, like a Tall Boy (clothes cupboard) and because it reverted back to a masonry façade which emulated the skyscrapers of old, it was hailed for it brilliance!

For the next 10 years, 100's, if not 1000's of projects around the world emulated this Post Modern Tower, even tilt up concrete panel factory facades tried to copy this buildings distinctive crowning feature! design and detail had come back to the Architectural Façade!

The facade of the Vietcombank Tower in Saigon, Vietnam is simply fascinating IMO.

That is a good looking facade. Are those residential or office towers?
