Just because it's a box doesn't mean it's not going to look futuristic.

I don't believe in '60s/70s' architecture. Only 'international style' since it's the name of an architectural style itself. The words 'box' and 'dated' mean pretty much nothing to me, as I think any style is welcome at any time period. 'Boxes' should still be built, and gothic should still be built. As long as the building looks good, it's fine.

These ravaging modernist maniacs go over board at times.

The BFT is indeed one iconical skyscraper located in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City.
It symbolizes a lotus flower, but many people don't like its design. Some say it looks like a watering can and others often complain that it's really stretched out.
IMO, this is my favourite skyscraper!

Another underrated one is the Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower in Hanoi, a supertall complex consisting of three towers.
It's the tallest building in Vietnam and IMO it's a very classy complex.
People always say that the tower is too massive and fat.
But the complex fits Hanoi's skyline perfectly.

Some nice shots featuring this tower:

Dongguan TBA Building. 289 meters. if this had been 11 meters taller it would have been more known on this forum.

One of the most underrated supertalls (underrated as in least known, not hated) is the JP Morgan Chase tower in Houston.

A trapezoid? It's all of those things. A very nice piece of architecture that is often overlooked in the eyes of architecture buffs. A beautiful building inside and out.

I Love THESE ' Bad Boys ' ! (formerly known as Crocker Center) These towers are, unapologetically, corporate and majestic. Their dramatic placement, sleek geometry, and towering height commands attention without dominating the scene..... These towers possess the essence of an Armani suit..... SEXY!

Moi Center in Shenyang is another supertall that's rarely mentioned, but it looks great and wouldn't even look bad at the WTC site!

It looks ugly from afar, but up close it's really interesting.
