I voted the Sears Tower, just because it's the only one I've seen in person, and it blew me away. I think that the IFC would come in as a close second place, then Petronas, Jin Mao, and finally Taipei 101. I personally don't like the design of the 101.

Jin Mao does it for me.
What bothers me the most about Taipie 101 is that horrible green color. If it was black it problably would look evil and imposing, but green... all black by itself would have been the look for it.

Sears is still the best. Built back in 1974, still has the world's tallest vertical sheer glass wall. I've seen all the the towers in the poll and Sears scrapes the sky the best and looks the tallest? Why you say?

Because you can get right next to the window at the bottom and look straight up to the 110th floor on one of the sides. No set backs, no frilly bits, no styling... just black painted steel and glass. Going up 1450ft. Unbeatable!
