Standing next to these icons, any building would be overlooked.

Nice building and almost a supertall. Probably also a reason why it hasn't much attention.

Not a skyscraper, but this structure was far ahead of its time, being built in the 50s.
It barely gets any attention despite it being an awe-inspiring work of art.
Atomium, Brussels, Belgium

Within Europe I guess it is popular.

It was was once my task in a math test to calculate the volume of that building.

Yeah it is fairly popular, even though many people don't know what it is exactly. A friend of mine thought it's a giant sculpture of some chemical compounds.

Guangzhou Pinnacle

Senlan
Honestly one of my favourite buildings in the world and definitely my favourite completed building in China. It's postmodernism done RIGHT.


23 Marina, Dubai

I think it's underrated.

The Federal Reserve building in Boston. So many people hate it, but to me it just screams "Boston" and it's our unique, evil evil evil tower!

It indeed stands for Boston, that's why I had the Guess The City correct a few days ago.
