ESB, Sears Tower and Shanghai World Financial Center are my all time favorites, but obviously I love many skyscrapers

Either the John Hancock Center for it's beautiful crown of lights and tall antennas,

[IMG]http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170815/a9b7808a63df7ac29a944122883bb295.jpg[

The Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago for it's beautiful and futuristic design right next to the Chicago River,



Or the Willis Tower for it's impressive height and revolutionary design that makes it a very unique building.

P.S. I do not own any of the images provided above

This is very hard, but if I had to choose one skyscraper it would be the Bank of China tower in Hong Kong.

Whenever I see these two behemoth, the theme "magical castles in the sky" always pop up in my mind. There are many great towers in the world, but few are as magical as the Petronas twins illuminating the night sky of Kuala Lumpur.

432 PARK AVENUE : MIDTOWN MANHATTAN , NEW YORK ( 2015 ) [ 425.5 m ]

"Manhattan has been compelled to expand skyward because of the absence of any other direction in which to grow. This, more than any other thing,
is responsible for its physical majesty. It is to the nation what the white church spire is to the village-the visible symbol of aspiration and faith,
the white plume saying that the way is up."

- E.B. White

Timeless architecture, art deco at its best.

Elegant, beautiful, braking new engineering grounds.

All photos from wiki.

INSPIRATION IS OFTEN mystifying, but this is especially weird: the exterior of 432 Park Avenue, the new luxury condo tower and tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, was inspired by a trash can. For a building that’s been panned by the media as “a genuine clunker,” the layup joke is almost too obvious.
