Calatrava has some unique scraper design but he still doens't have that much of a profile compared to I.M. Pei or Cesar Pelli

Norman Foster is not just famous for his Hong Kong work. I also liked Swiss Re in London and Hearst Tower in New York. His Stansted terminal was also very spacious and comfortable - much better than older Heathrow.

I liked the Swiss Re as well Anyway, one of his most interesting scraper projects was the Millennium Tower in Tokyo but it's only a vision.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Don't forget KPF!!!!!!!!!!

Shanghai World Financial Centre
ICC
Daewoo Tower
Esprito Santo Plaza
Parkhaven Tower
Roppongi Tower
1250 Boulevard Rene Levesque
DG Bank
Plaza 66
5 Times Square

Only SOM can rival KPF in terms of skyscrapers, and the rest are just miles behind.

i would certainly go with Skidmore ,Owings & Merill cause they not only designed Sears tower ,Burj Arab,Al Burj but lots of tower from all over the world.......no one can compete them as they lonely handle projects more then any other...
