I like the Tour Part-Dieu in Lyon. It's a very original crown.

It is a classic, after all.

Plagiarism?

Liberty Center is just a crude knock-off of the Chrysler Building.

I always thought the Bank of America tower in Charlotte, North Carolina has a beautiful crown. Very fitting for a city known as the "Queen City"

The crown of the Woolworth is just beautiful. The amount of detail is just jaw-dropping. It is a shame buildings like that are not built anymore.

A prime opportunity for someone to do some restoration work and return it to its full glory, then!

Jin Mao Tower, not only one of the crown jewels of Shanghai but also a jewel of a crown! I love the high-tech looking pagoda crown!
