What is your favourite skyscraper?

So what is it? Post a picture.

My favourite is 2IFC

I think it has good proportions.


My second favourite is Scotia Plaza in Toronto

The Centre, Hong Kong, China
This building is absolutely spectacular. The facade and design are brilliant, IMO. In fact, this is the building that first made me "look" at skyscrapers differently and got me interested in them as well. I owe so much to this building. Maybe I'll visit it one day.

Hmm, gonna have to say Swiss Re. Not just on national pride. But it is THE building that got me interested in Skyscrapers and London, the moment I looked to my right after leaving Aldgate station whilst on the way to a airshow at Southend. , its sparked a whole new acceptance of tall buildings in this country. Symbolic of London's modern side. Fantasimo.
