Not really a fan although admittedly our skyline in Chicago is dominated by two dark tinted skyscrapers (and I do love our skyline).

Hey great idea for a own thread.
I'm loving black skyscrapers. Not any building already posted here but the most of them. My favorites are (surely:-) Willis Tower and John Hancock Center in Chicago. The more true black it is the better it is!
I think there are too few black skyscrapers, especially in China. Blueish cladding all around in differend shades, this becomes boring.
Black looks majestically, timeless, powerfull. My greatest wish is a black megatall building

My favorite skyscraper, the Sears Tower, is black. And the John Hancock Center is black, too. But other than those two skyscrapers, there really aren't many more black ones that I like.

Currently there is a building boom on in Melbourne, some stunning and not so stunning towers going up!

This is by far my Favourite, Yes, because it Black, I love how it flexes its muscles all the way up! Love, love black towers...... like its a pedestal awaiting for a perfect sculpture to crown it! however this one is like it's the perfect black sculpture sitting upon a marble base (thus the tower becomes the Art!)

Only in New York City can a 42 storey Black "Punctured Tube" be almost overlooked!

919 3rd Ave..... The tower to the left!

With all the cheap looking blue glass buildings going around... the world could use more black skyscrapers.
