Unsure if this has been posted before, regardless I think it's pretty cool.

I find roof height usually gives one the best gauge of height/how big a building is. When I look at buildings my attention isn't focused on the antennae; I look at what it's sitting on. One thing is certain, people will be debating this forever.

I think the Sears (Willis) Tower is different... if you have ever been to Chicago one of the things that sticks out about Willis is the antennae.... possibly because they are so big, dominant and CLADDED -- which is key. Its not like looking at a typical building with the usual antennae. Their shear size and the fact that they are CLADDED makes a huge difference.

Also, the antennae on Willis gives it one of the most easily recognized silhouettes in the world. Willis without its iconic antennae would simply not be the same building.

However, there is one thing we can agree upon.... the debate will go on forever
