Flatiron is a classic. But there are some resemblances in Toronto and Shanghai

I've been inside Toronto's Gooderham Building before, and the architecture is so much simpler than the Flatiron in New York. The building is also a lot shorter. Sure, the shape is similar, but that's pretty much it.

I'd say this Toronto building near the main railway station is closer to looking like the Flatiron :

Tribune and Wrigley look quite good, and I prefer Tribune more because of its details. I caught an exhibition showing the many designs of Tribune when it was commissioned. I looked at a couple of them in detail and was quite amazed at the sheer number of different designs!

Wow so many unique and interesting mid-rises.

The Flatiron would get my vote. 1 West India Quay is deceptive because from the back it looks crap.

Flatiron is definitely a lovely classic, and there are so many details on those Naples buildings, albeit they are very simple formations. Simplicity can still be very beautiful.

The first European skyscraper!
KBC-tower, Antwerp, Belgium
A nice classic from 1929-1932
98 m.




I'm sorry to say that of course this is not first European Skyscraper, for example, Telefonica building in Madrid, is 88 meters tall and was built between 1925 and 1929, and i never thougth it was oldest european skyscraper. this is the building i'm talking about:

Copenhagen has quite a number of interesting midrises, especially the new residentials in Ørestad and Islands Brygge.
