Some of my favourites :

1. Messeturm (Frankfurt, Germany)
2. Turning Torso (Malmö, Sweden)
3. Swiss-Re (London, United Kingdom)
4. Tours Société Générale (Puteaux, France)
5. Hotel Arts (Barcelona, Spain)
6. Torre Agbar (Barcelona, Spain)

What about these beautiful pics taken by Gabe from the Spanish forum of the Arts Hotel in Barcelona?

You're right! Thanks for the pic how tall will it/they be?

By the way, "Barca" (pronounced "barka") means small boat in Spanish the nick name of Barcelona is "Barça" (pronounced "barsa") in Catalan

I'm still thinking between the Swiss Re in London and The Messeturm in Frankfurt! The Messeturm on the other hand still has the height and has been the most symbolic Euro scraper for years!
