Of course I'm biased but I really like the Torso:





But those Dubai Towers in Istanbul will without a doubt beat the Torso in both design and height.

Sadly enough, the TT is the only true skyscraper in all of Sweden
Here in Stockholm the tallest building is the Kista Science Tower which hardly classifies as anything else than a tall building.. I cant believe the horrible "box" they put up on the roof!



At least we got a 41 floor building that has been approved, but this being Stockholm and all I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be 15 floors in the end

We all have our favourites and it is all a matter of taste but I would be surprised if Tour EDF at La Defense didn't win a popularity contest.

It is near perfect in my view. The Gherkin is lovely and witty. It fits in perfectly with london's "post modern capital of the world" self image and is a building of its time and place but EDF is simply beautiful a la 333 Wacker in Chicago. Neither ultra tall but both simply world class buildings adding beauty and grace.

Some of my favorite skyscrapers in Europe are, in no particular order: Rondo 1, Turning Torso, Torre Agbar, The Gherkin.

Towely is way to stoned to judge about design aspects of the Messeturm. Better try Mr. Hankey, the Christmas poo.



By the by, where do we have to search for the similarities to the ESB?
