1. Chrysler Building, NYC (Enough said.)

2. Empire State Building, NYC (The classic skyscraper silhouette.)

3. Petronas Towers, KL (Islamic masterpieces. Simple jawdropping at night.)

4. Bank of China, Hong Kong (An audacious crystalline geometric thrust to the sky)

5. John Hancock Centre, Chicago (It means business!)

6. Woolworth Building, NYC - (Timeless. The Mozart of skyscrapers.)

7. HSBC Tower, Hong Kong (High Tech perfection. Still looks state of the art.)

8. Swiss Re Tower, London (Breathakingly original. A cheeky companion to the masculine Natwest Tower and complements St Pauls Dome in the best possible way).

9. Umeda Sky Building, Osaka (A funky piece of deconstructivist architecture by Hiroshi Hara with seriously scary escalators!)

I've included a few photos of this one as its not as famous as it should be.

10. Commerzbank Tower, Frankfurt (The first eco-scraper.)
