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

Those American Art Déco buildings are so amazing... But I´d like to add the Woolworth Building:


Picture from cityprofile.com


Picture from newconstructionmanhattan.com

I'm actually amazed it hasn't been quoted in this thread yet. Outside the USA very few people know this building, which is why I mention it as underrated. It is an architectural gem imho, and it was the tallest building in the world from 1913-1930.
By the way, the building turns 100 on April 24th 2013!

Boston's John Hancock Tower. The original all-glass curtain skyscraper, and still one of the best. Greatest minimalist structure on earth.

  • I agree with you: It is the MOST underrated building of all time and there are many reasons but the main reason is it's design. I personally like it , but many people can't help but relate it to :

I love the art-deco brickwork for 60 Hudson Street, NYC

It is 371 Feet tall and has 24 floors. When it was constructed in 1931 (same year as the other two buildings) it was called the Western Union Building. Since then it has had many names considering its size and how much space it takes up. Alternative names include 150 West Broadway, 79 Thomas St, 2 Worth St. It has 1,800,000 square feet, which is the second most of the three buildings.

Back in the 1980's a series of posters were created of these glorious structures. There are many that are nearly forgotten in the skyscraper boom of the last 30 years.

Unfortunately, they are tucked behind the main skyline so are barely visible. They were inspired by climbing koalas, and were designed by an Australian architect.
