The Rialto, Melbourne, tallest scraper in Australia for some time. But i found these forums while on work experiance with a graphic designer, seeming his office was in a scraper, we had a great veiw of all the other scrapers, so he showed my scraperpage, when i got home and googled it, i found this, and found an Aussie section, and Melbourne section, i've been here ever since.

it was the bank of china building in hong kong.. i remember as a child i would always be sketching it and finding pictures of it... i guess even as a child it had great influences on me and STILL has not lost its special place in my heart.... (also.. cn tower, but i guess that is not a building per se)

Mine is the twin towers of the World Trade Center in NY. When I first saw them at age 8, I was madly in love with skyscrapers and knew at the same moment that I will grow to be a skyscraper builder.

It really hurts to know they are not there anymore

One Canada Square. London.

It used to look so huge when it was on it's own, isolated. We used to drive past it when I was a kid and I'd just stare at it until it vanished out of the horizon or it's view got obscured.

I first became interested in skyscrapers when i visited the courthouse in miami where my mother worked. It's kind of ugly and stands only 110m tall. But it was the first tall building i ever visited. I was even more impressed by the WTC but I visited it when I was older.

There was no one building that got me interested, it was looking at a 2 page spread of tall structures of the world in a book while shopping that got me intrigued. But at that time I heard about the Petronas Towers nearing completion and that was the first building I began researching online.

Boerentoren, Antwerp, the first skyscraper of the European continent, 97m tall, 1932:



But also the left one, Cathedral of Our Lady, in my opinion the most beautiful building in the world, largest and tallest gothic church in the Benelux.
