I'm not seeing the Millenium Tower picture.

This is a tough one, but I'd have to go with Vienna's best.

Between Swiss Re, Turning Torso and Torre Agbar for me.

It's a difficult choice, but I vote for Swiss Re.

PS. As for MesseTurm. I know lots of people think it's a great 'scraper but to me it looks like a giant, upturned pencil. Ewwww.
