My favorite visionary project are the Twin Towers 2, also called Trump World Trade Center. I always wished that they would be the World Trade Center that was rebuilt:





My other favorite visionary project is the Houston Tower:



Other than these two favorites I also love the Holonic Tower:



Here is the SSP diagram for these buildings:

Foster's Millennium Tower is still an extremely classic design to me:

Russia Tower
Would have been the most beautiful building ever, imo.
