The Illinois is fine I guess, if people don't like it because they think it's a vision, they can vote for the other one.

Well but people will vote for it (including me) and it will win because it's from the different league. And it is from different league because it's a vision. It's 1600m tower proposed in 1958. It had no real investor/developer and no particular location address where it could eventually be build. It is listed as vision (not unbuilt) by most serious sites (ctbuh, emporis, etc) and only two or three vague drawings were ever published about it.

It's just a stupid contest, right? So it's not a biggie if you include it but it just a bit pointless to place it against real projects that really don't stand a chance against it. How is that fun if you know who will win from the start?

Visions are unbuilt too so I don't see any problem here. I think it is good that such buildings are included in the contest too

Thanks to jome_omt for suggesting this.

Happy nominating!

But not every unbuilt is a vision. If we could vote for visions there could be more even better visions getting in like xseed4000 or tokyo skycity. Now we have one extreme vision against normal projects so such so such contest is a bit pointless to me.
