Highrise Architecture Appreciation Tournament

Hey, guys. I had the idea to start this thread the other day studying different architectural styles in buildings over 250 feet. How this works is I'll line up 16 different buildings that I believe represent a city's different architectural styles. Once we finish one city, I'll pick another and line up 16 more buildings.

1. I'll post the tournament nominees and we'll begin each round by me posting a photo of the two nominees.
2. After I post both nominees and a picture of each, I'll vote and post the score.
3. After I do that, you guys then vote for your favorite and you must post a different picture of the building, whether it's of a full view, ornament, the interior, or any part of it.
4. After doing so, you post the score.
5. First building with 8 votes wins.

This thread is much more than a competition. My goal is for viewers to learn more about different buildings, styles, and cities through this thread, and for this to be a nice photo album showing the best of the best in all their glory. I hope you guys like the idea, and this will be a great experience for all of us. I'll only need 14 of you to keep the thread alive, so please stay subscribed.

Regards,

L.A.F.2.
