All of these buildings kick ass. Even if you like one more than the others, you sound less insane than someone badmouthing anything on this list. Too many people on this forum have very obvious inferiority complexes that they express through criticism of architecture that is basically accepted as objectively flawless.

Personally, I think the Chrysler Building is grandest and most magical for its time. You can't deny the sheer influence it has had on popular art and imagery. It is the ultimate skyscraper.

Now I agree looking at it could have been taller...

I think PTT is being overrated especially back home its national pride
