Your two buildings are pretty nice, but what do you think, of the Royal Bank Tower in T.O. Do you think gold was a good choice, or a bit over the top?
IMO, I love the gold, it just works on so many levels, especially in T.O. where everything is supposedly so bland.
No Problem for the reply eddyk.

I tend to like anything that looks very sleek. Buildings that try to do to much I rather dislike. One of my newest favourites is Swiss Re. It's just so sleek and the swirling colours do look rather impressive.

I don't have a favorite cladding, but those of Trre Agbar isn't bad.

The Jin Mao Tower.

Viewed from up-close it's very intricate.

Not a skyscraper, but the Esplanade in Singapore has one of the best claddings:
