Actually the Wells Fargo Center's design reminds me of the Vietcombank Tower which is under construction in Saigon. Well, both of them were designed by Pelli.

Wells Fargo Center is first, by far.

Columbia Center, Scotia Plaza, Williams Tower, DLI63, Bank of America in Houston

80s was so much better than 90s architecture

A lot of the 80's stuff is bland, but at least its not tacky (and therefore hideous) like most of the 90's stuff.

I just love the eighties and its tacky postmodern buildings. The most recognizable landmarks were erected in this decade.

Columbia Seafirst Center!

(I used to call it with this old name)...
I started to be interested in skyscrapers after I saw the photo of this building many years ago
It's amazing. And yeah, it's black!
Even now, after so many great buildings were built since then, it's still my favorite skyscraper in the US. First love is never really forgotten, you know

Others worth mention are US Bank Tower (LA), Wells Fargo Plaza & Williams Tower (Houston).

For postmodern, I love WF Plaza, JP Morgan, BOA Plaza, 1LP, Columbia, US Bank, and OUB. For the traditional replicas, WF Center, 1AC, and AT&T are all fantastic. I can't really compare the two categories, but if I had to pick a favorite, I'd have to say Wells Fargo Plaza. The cladding is untouchable and the shape incredibly intuitive.

Bank of America in Dallas. The lighting was decades ahead of its time.
