I know how about your favourite skyscraper and it is not allowed to be in your country and has to be built and inhabited!

Torre Agbar is one of my favourites!























I also love Tour EDF in Paris, and the skyline cluster made by the three towers of Canada Square in London.!

Obviusly I only said towers I've seen in person. By pictures, I love much more towers!

I agree. It's also the best-lit skyscraper in the world in my opinion - wonderful multi-coloured lighting that seems to "cascade" down the tower like a waterfall. Beautiful!

I'll be boring and say Chrysler, unless I've missed what original question was?

Chrysler is aesthetic design perfection, hasn't aged, timeless appeal.........
