Though, it is indeed a beautiful building.

I have a question though: What do you consider "Europe" for this contest?
There is a monkey in his avatar though?????

The Swiss Re in London is the best looking skyscraper in Europe. It insipired another one in Barcelona

But the Messeturm in Frankfurt still best represents the European skyscraper!

It didn't inspire torre agbar, did it ? where did you see that ? they have a very different structure and they were planned at about the same time.

I dont like Swiss Re. becouse it doesnt fit in there, its just out of nowhere and for me it doesnt have a special status in the skyline, just makes it uglier. But thats my spontaneous opinion.
The new scraper in wasrawa looked quite neat.

Swiss re is the most overrated tower in Europe...for me: Messeturm, Societe Generale and since I'm Dutch: Montevideo!

I really dislike Swiss Re. It's really ugly, just because it's different, it doesn't mean to be beautiful. Somebody must say that the king is naked. Sory but it looks like, err, ob's tampon.
