I would've said Bloomberg Tower too, but it's not completed yet.

hm.. i assume that Swiss Re will probably win this contest..

but well.. here's the newly finished Central World Trade Tower in Bangkok, Thailand.
its crown changes colors, graphics, and animations every once in a while.


(picture from Jo)

and these pictures are from Chad.



(the thai flag is animated also)

Swiss Re is one of world's best skyscrapers as well as one of my favorite skyscrapers and I love it very much but according to Emporis (I'm tended to trust it) it was completed in 2003 so logically it cannot be nominated for 2004. Of course unless somebody is going to provide a proof that it was really completed in 2004.

Now my nominations are:

1. Time Warner Center, NYC, USA


2. One Churchill Place, London, UK


3. Europa Tower, Vilnius, Lithuania

Emporis can never be trusted imo. They think 12 storie buildings are Skyscrapers. My vote goes to Swiss Re

Ok, so is anybody going to provide a more trusted source about the real completion date of Swiss Re? It would be weird if it becomes a winner of Emporis in 2003 and winner of SSC in 2004.

@coth

do you really think that Moscow's "Triumph Palace" or these "Sparrow Hills" commieblocks are nicer than Time Warner center or Swiss Re?

TP have all chances to win Emporis 2004.

Time Warner is nice, but too typical...

My nominations:
1. Time Warner Center NYC
2. Times Square Tower NYC
3. Bloomberg Tower (If you will count that) if not then I'll add the Goldman Sachs tower in Jersey City. Here's a pic that HKSkyline posted and at about 240 meters it's not that small at all..

Why does noone talk about Taipei 101? According to Emporis and the Skyscraperpage diagram it was completed in 2004.
