Two candidates from LA have been mentioned the Bonaventure hotel and the Capitol records building, but I like I. M. Pei's US Bank building once known as the Library Tower.

Tun Mustapha Tower, Kota Kinabalu Sabah
Located 5 kilometres or about 15 minutes away from the KK City Centre. Formerly known as the Sabah Foundation Building, this circular tower of steel and glass stands 30 storeys high in the Likas Bay area and is instantly recognizable as a Sabah icon. It has a central core with steel brackets supporting each floor. When completed in 1977, it was one of the four such buildings in the world based on this design concept.

Inside are housed an auditorium, two mini-theatres, exhibition foyer, a gymnasium, kindergarten and Research library. On the 18th floor is the revolving restaurant Atmosphere where you can enjoy a different dining experience.

http://cgg-journal.com/1999-1/01/Denis.htm#42 will show you an example of what a generic cylindrical surface is.
From an architect's point of view, a Cylindrical Skyscraper is such a curvilinear one, which is just possible to wash
