Some truly awe inspiring buildings on here. Until this thread I had no idea most of them even existed!

Thing is there are dozens of those gems in New York but they are kind of lost in the canyons of Manhattan. That's what you get when you have a superdense skyline.

i totally agree, there are tens of asian cities that are dominated by a 300m-350m tower that is just beautyful and defines the city, most of these are quite unrated i think.

I quite like the fact they're hidden. That way they become underrated, and that makes them special. I always like finding new skyscrapers.

Speaking of NYC the Citigroup tower (White slanty one) is quite unspoken of.

And Trump World Tower. IMO it is one of the most confident looking skyscrapers in the world.

Yeah, why is Trump Tower on some of the 'world's ugliest' lists...???
To make it worse, none of these lists can exactly stat why they put in on the list. The only argument that makes sense to me is 'gaudy interior decoration' because the exterior looks gorgeous.
But even so, you have a vast array of Dubai buildings which are far more gaudy, externally and internally. And people ask why those 'ugliest buildings' lists are pathetic?

I daresay that one I prefer over the World Tower, though most would disagree. To me, that tower gives East Midtown much more vibrance.

I don't even remember the last time someone mentioned Cityplex in Tulsa


Not the prettiest but I think it looks cool and sci-fi. Dystopian.
Actually I like my buildings evil.


Another is Pennzoil Place in Houston, very rarely noticed but very groundbreaking for its time (1976). Some say it was one of the first postmodernist skyscrapers (if you can really call it postmodernist, I prefer 'modern') but it's a beautiful black gem neverhteless. A take on international modernism but with a creative touch.
The atrium is a modern masterpiece
