Many thanks to kevin92000

Indeed .

Here's an interesting interview of Thom Mayne (Phare's father) dating from April 2009:

If it wasn't canceled I would choose the Belle van Zuylen Tower, Utecht, The Netherlands.
Unfortunately it got cancelled so I'll pick the Shard in London!

I think Tour Phare looks like an ugly, deformed abandoned ruin straight out of the movie "Idiocracy"...

The best for me : the Shard

No it's not. At first it was to be 300m tall but eventually Phare was slightly scaled down to 296m.

I'm going for Federation Tower, one of the most impressive supertalls of our times! But Shard and Phare come close

I don't like Federation Tower although it is very tall, because i don't find any creative design or good iconic architecture in it. Oh the other hand, Phare tower is not too tall, but it's design can be noticed easily among many skyscrapers all over the world. And for London, i prefer the Pinnacle tower than the Shard. I'd rather have impressive architecture than the height. But Moscow has many other great buildings too, i don't know their names but they look interesting.

wow! Shard tower in London seems to be best one (in renders at least), it's look wonderfully blended in the environment, It seems like they don't think only about records and more to mix this high building in the zone, I like it.

About Hermitage Towers, looks great, I sold my soul to buy a floor with that panoramic view of Paris!

Yeah the Pinnacle is a nice new tower for London (Leadenhall also) but it is not being considered a supertall (Tour Phare actually isn't one too, if it really is "only" 296m).

I don't like Federation Tower that much either, but I think its design is quite recognizable.
