i know its not around anymore and not on the list but im picking the WTC it kicks the sears tower ass but far the sears was just soo boring compaired to the wtc and idk i dont think i can like a building named after a crappy dept store and well u just cant beatthe wtc lol thye kicked ass and i wish they were still standing also when the attenia was added in 1978 thta made it taller then the sears whitch had a smaller one at the time btw lol i had to put that in all i ahve to say about the sears tower is that its one the most over rated buildings ever to be built they should chage the name also cause sears isent even there anymore :-P

Petronas Towers: a stunningly iconic and cultural masterpiece, imo.
Second would be 2IFC, the only one of the bunch I was fortunate enough to see with my own eyes - so far - , and on first sight it actually left me quite speechless. The rest just doesn't quite cut it: high but too average, boxy, tacky or just plain fugly...

I like all buildings except Sears towers because it is ugly and boxy. Not nice to look at, very boring
