I've always wanted to see more green in skyscrapers. Bright green glass like this:

The Domaine (177m residential tower proposed by Brisbane)


The Future Flat (UC in Manaus)

Blueish Glassy facades.

If you want to know what not to use in a skyline (color wise) just take a look at adelaide, australia skyline...
the buildings are an ugly sandwash colour...

I think the majority of colours can go well with a cetain skyscraper, but in my humble oppinion, I regard blueish icy-white glass, represented nicely in the upcoming London Bridge Tower, as a superior choice of colour


"The building is to be covered with what the designers call "extra white" glass, which will reflect the sky more than most traditional skyscrapers. In effect, it will disappear at upper levels, depending on weather conditions. Moreover, as the light changes from season to season, so too will the appearance of the tower change."

And also, I really like the represented silver/blue/purple colours of the proposed Bishopgate Tower:

Vancouver green is certainly unique, but I personally prefer silverish blue.

Blue. Bank of China and 2IFC. But you certainly have something special with Maroon Red in Scotia Plaza.

Black for office towers a la Sears Tower and TD Towers does scream out power and evilness.

I prefer glass facades that mirror the sky.
