Don't get me wrong, the singer building was a masterpiece, but just wasn't practical as anything.

1 liberty plaza is a good building
Yeah, Singer was way too thin to be practical. But hell, it sure was a beauty:

Renaissance Center (Detroit, 1977, 222 m, 70 fl)









The complex is absolutely fantastic but hardly ever gets mentioned.

I've never really found Leatop that attractive. Pinnacle and Pearl River on the other hand...

Red Road Flats, Glasgow




They were built from 1964-1969. At the time of construction they were the tallest flats in Europe. They were unusual in construction for being steel-framed, most of Britain's towerblocks were built with concrete. In 2005 the GHA announced their intention to demolish the flats. Two of them have already been demolished. The first one, 153-213 Petershill Drive was demolished on June 10th 2012. The second one, 21 Birnie Court was demolished on May 5th 2013. The remaining six are to be demolished by 2017.

This is them now

Those were some of Scotland's nicer tower blocks, shame they are all being demolished.

They could have just refurbished them and given the entire district a makeover!

IMO LIM Tower (Saigon) is pretty underrated.
