Swiss Re has more elegant form but Torre Agbar has more fascinating "texture".

Swiss Re. It has got a nicer shape and cladding.
And the steel construction is made by a compagny of my hometown...

Torre Agbar by far, in my opinion the cladding is very special while there is nothing special about the swis re cladding.
