I like Sears and Taipei 101. I hate Petronas...it never should have overtaken Sears for the tallest.

Sears Tower for me, followed by Petronas Towers.

I absolutely hate Taipei 101 and Jin Mao towers, they are extremely ugly.

The pics of aboveday are the best of 2IFC I've ever seen.

I voted for Sears(as you can see some posts up)

I look forward to the results of this thread about a month, or two.
