If the former Kowloon Walled City could be seen as one building(it looks more like a single entity), I will vote it the coolest.

This is the website for it:

That crooked house is really cool. Looks like it should be in a Dali painting.

Many North American towers, old or new, are powerful looking. To me that quality is pretty cool.

Sears Tower


Also Chrysler Building, the gothic inspired towers and BOC in HK.
