No colour favourite. A skyscraper is beauty itself, without depending on the colour.

But black glass is really smart and elegant!

I tend to find black a sleekish color for skyscrapers.

I think a variety of colours is good as well in a skyline:





But my favourite is silver, black and then blue

I do not have a favorite skyscraper colour, a lot of variety is good.

ALL black skyscrapers are utter crap except fot the JHC. I like reflective ones with light colors, like 2-4WTC, the FT, SWFC, and LBT. See-through is sometimes okay too, and I guess also a mix of see-through and reflective can be done, like depending on the amount of light hitting the tower. It's always good to see structure.

I disagree - Seagram's better than JHC. Although Seagram's a bit browny.
