You want us to compare the Transamerica Pyramid with the Louvre Pyramid? And The Shard with some stone pyramid in Rome??

One for each era Shard as a skyscraper, Louvre entrance as a modern structure, Cheops and Castillo for being historic.
Luxor is just cool. Interiors are a bit tacky, but the light from the top is just sick.

I love those ancient Egyptian pyramids, no building with a similar shape will ever beat those.

Ryugyong's not a pyramid. It's like calling Kingdom Tower or the former Russia Tower design a pyramid.

Replace it with this, maybe.
