Cause I think it's the same architect. Pelli if i'm not mistaken. He's got a tendency to copy and paste.

TAIPEI 101 vs Swiss Re

Swiss Re is a really cute building! But it is too short to be called a skyscraper.

600ft is easily tall enough to be a skyscraper. This building can be seen from half the places in London.

Wenzhou, Zhejiang province, China

According to the Emporis data base there are no completed highrises in Wenzhou at all! ... so I guess these buildings can all nominate for this year then ...
Wenzhou World Trade Grand Hotel

Wenzhou Telecom (the building in the right)

Nanning, Guangxi Aut.reg. China

Here are some uncatalogued buildings from Nanning. Remember, you can't vote for these because they do not exist yet .. at least not in Emporis data base ..
