This is one of the only green buildings I like, and I love it. Taipei 101 is the only other one I can think of that I like a lot.

From a distance they are less spectacular, but still elegant.

Very nice tower. Somehow it has an ancient Greek look, like a minimalistic temple.

A grossly underrated one in my opinion is Conde Nast (4 Times Square). It's a deconstructivist masterpiece, and all the combined elements in the tower as well as shapes near the top make it something to behold:

With the exception of the L.A. one, the BOA skyscrapers in New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Charlotte, and Seattle (AKA Columbia Seafirst) are all gorgeous, yet they are completely different.

This one?
Reminds me of AON Center. It's not the prettiest but it's not ugly.

In LA, I think Two California Plaza is underrated, alongside City National Plaza

The 777 Tower in Los Angeles. I like it's cuves, setbacks details and night lights.

Look at the wind tunnels for the first one, very groundbreaking for its time.

For me it's the Westend Tower in Frankfurt. Even though it's the third tallest in Germany, it is not that well known. Obviously it's stand in the shadow of the taller Messeturm and Commerzbank Tower. But it also doesn't get as much attention as other tower in the city, like Main Tower or the Deutsche Bank twins.



IMO it is one of the most beautiful towers in the city.

Really NIce. Hadn't even heard of it before. Kind of reminiscent of Capella in Minneapolis
