I saw the skyline from the airport terminal and could clearly make out the four tallest ones.

It was cloudy so I couldn't make out many details. Clouds were covering the top part of the Sears Tower

That's one of my favorites. Great lines and angles along with the cladding.

Very underrated building: Co-Operation Investment House and Wyndham Hotel in Manama. Still under construction, but it's strange how such a beautiful building is not more mentioned.

I think the Ayala Life-FGU Center is very underrated, in fact, people hardly notice it.

I'm also an original 7 WTC and One Liberty Plaza fan, One Liberty looks like it could kick some asses and take names, big time.
