Look...I live as far away as anyone from any of these structures...so the winner is Fuller Building 175 5th Avenue New York ! ( Flatiron ) because of it's shape...I like buildings anywhere but most are landmarks to those that live in that city. I see world famous structures but if you had to tip your lid to one building that set it in motion...this is it..I reckon.

Okay thanks for that It's tricky because different sites say different years, Emporis and Wikipedia say 2003, but Foster + Partners, CTBUH and SkyscraperPage say 2004! How can it be this hard to decide which year a building was finished in!

My nominations would be:

The Empire State Building, New York City



The Prudential Building, Boston



and The Renaissance Center, Detroit



If the Empire State Building is already in (which it probably is) then I would replace that with the Shanghai World Financial Center; Shanghai, PRC

Although it is not a skyscraper - I understand completely where you are coming from. Oriel Chambers needs some recognition, but im not sure this list is suitable for it's recognition.

Nevertheless, beautiful building.

And although not a skyscraper, it is worthy of a mention as it is the first 'modern building' due to it being the first built with a metal framed glass curtain wall, without this many other candidates would not have been possible:

3. Oriel Chambers, Liverpool

It looks like 30 St. Mary Axe (The Gherkin) is getting a great deal of votes!

Im glad it's getting the recognition it deserves!

I believe it was completed in 2003 - but the floors were filled in 2004, thus it opened for business in 2004.

But it would qualify, due to the actual building being finished in 2003.

What a wonderful idea. I would like to nominate these three skyscrapers:

Sears Tower - my fave ever:

I would also like to nominate Agbar Tower or any in CTBA in Madrid but they're too young, they're not over 10 years old

Nobody never ever reads the rules, it seems.

My nominations would be:

1. Flatiron Building - a symbol of elegance and what a street level friendly skyscraper should look like
2. Space Needle - truly unique and a must see for any UFO fan
3. Moscow State University - a rare and fine example of a tower that occupies the entire block and looks cool both if it's built in a middle of a forest or in a dense urban environment; a feat that Triumph Palace failed so miserably to repeat some 50 years later

77 West Wacker

Bank of China Tower (the building is really incredible at night in person in a way photographs can't capture)



And if it counts, London City Hall


If it doesn't count, then 35 East Wacker
