Limestone, brick, granite, terra cotta, steel and concrete facades are the best because of the level of detail architects can put into the building. However, you get more natural light in buildings with glass facades. I would prefer to work in a skyscraper with a glass facade but live in a skyscraper with a different one.

I like all building styles equally. What matters is the quality of the materials.
