Bank of China building in Hong Kong, or the Burj al Arab for modern buildings. Probably the Chrysler building for older ones. Wow those leaning buildings make me nauseous.

very difficult but Sears Tower, Aon Center and the Empire State Building are definitely one of my favourites!

Very hard to choose, but Toronto's city hall is certainly on my list.
