It reminds me of The Rennaisance Centre in Detroit! I really don't find it amusing except the lower part of the building!

This would make a better contender for Malaysia

If I'm being honest I think Detroit is a sh*thole too.... And I agree with him with regards to the REnaissance Center.

Some of it's suburbs are nice though.

My favourite is the Hopewell for hte record.

I visited Detroit last summer and the downtown wasn't as bad as I thought. There are a few abandoned buildings but there has been a lot of rejuvenation work as well. A small section of the riverfront has been revitalized in front of the RenCen and there is a casino within walking distance.

Can the US Bank Tower in LA be considered cylindrical or does the scraper have to be a full cylinder?

How about the amazing Suite Vollard...each of the 11 apartments can rotate 360º without the owner even feeling it.
