Nice thread guys. It's hard to say whether one is better than another as they're all unique. They all have their strenghs & weaknesses, actually I like many of them . Here's a brand new contestant representing France, called First (231m), it was recently inaugurated in La Défense (on 5 may) and has now surpassed 'Montparnasse Tower' as the tallest office tower in France.

'First'

I saw this building in person when i visited La Defense 2 days ago.

I have to say it is such a quality building with really good cladding and i found most buildings in that CBD are great though, they look clean as well.

Clearly the Uni Giant in Leipzig. Everything else would be pure speculation.

I'd go for the "Pirellone" in Milan. Old but still up to date.

I guess I'm in the minority, but I actually find Torre Agbar to be really ugly during the day. The colour scheme is dull, and it's too elongated (so much so that it looks like a tampon). The lighting at night is pretty badass though.

tl;dr The Gherkin is still the better of the two "egg" skyscrapers for me.

if torre agbar would only be a simple box... the facade is great, but that tampon cubature is offending me.

Always loved that skyline and how old meets new, but i'm not sure if i can pick one individual building from it and say it's best looking skyscraper in Europe. Though First is probably best looking of them.

Got a go for Turning Torso. That building is even more mad thinking it's build up here North, land of sensibles and NIMBY's.
