Modern inclined towers

Which modern inclined towers do you know?

I know the following:
1. Tower of Olympic Stadium Montral, Canada ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympic...%28Montreal%29 )

2. inclined pylons near Hoover Dam ( http://pics.smashing.net/p11413993.html )

3. inclined anchor pylon at Sargans, Switzerland ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0014904 )

4. inclined pylons on the Vorab Mountain in Switzerland

Furthermore some support pillars of aerial tramways are also inclined towers.
Who knows more modern inclined towers of all types and for all uses? Please post also pictures and technical data!

The modern leaning towers of Madrid. Outstanding, but will they withstand gravity for centuries to come?
