The Twins were just not cool, they made the term 'soaring towers' very common.

At night the bottom part of the "dish" glows yellow, so that it looks as if its lifting off! COOL

The Pantheon. The building is almost 2000 years old and has a 142 foot wide dome.

There's a building not too far from Delhi that is quite cool despite temperatures soaring into the 40's Celsius (must be the marble).

OH, and it's the most beautiful edifice on earth, so that's worth some 'cool' points.

BTW, what's with the brown aluminum siding on the base of this this thing? Horrid. Looks like a barn. So much for that "icon".

I simply can't resist the temptation for one second longer, SOOO...I'm going to be a real nit-pick, weisenheimer, & smart-alek, and ask for a definition of "cool"....
