Crazy seeing Pudong without skyscrapers. Oriental pearl, I'll accept that it's iconic, but it's just so ugly. Maybe if they do a reclad it could look less 80s but that could only help so much.

Also, Germany has the coolest towers, imo. And weirdly most of its cities have one, which its neat.

I like the Tokyo Skytree and the Seattle Space Needle.

It's not my favourite type of architecture though.

Well, it is the shortest so far, but the world's only Flemish inspired Art Deco tower, and once the highest concrete structure in the world, might deserve a post on this thread.

Belfry of Lille, 104m (1932).

I like those modern observation towers, like Tokyo sky tree or TV tower in Guangzhou but i don't forget about CN Tower or Space Needle in Seattle, they are classics.

Ostankino is great. Very massive and brutal. CN-Tower is also very cool,
Lille is nice.
The Eiffel Tower is beautiful.

But the Fernsehturm in Berlin is the best!

besides the obvious megatall ones, the best designed smaller ones are the one in beijing, the U/C one in Huai'An and Zhengzhou (can't believe it wasn't mentioned yet)

These no face babies from hell are the weirdest thing someone ever thought of to make a city 'unique'.

That's the craziest of all towers here. But it's very unique
