I don't know if it's the "best" - but it's the beauty that truly rules the city...

Berlin is Classic. Damn Right!


Speaking of Classic - This is my Favorite Building in Nottingham. It is the Largest Public Square Building in Europe.






It is currently Under Redevelopment.

Best New/Old

The best new building in my town (Kirkcaldy, Scotland) in my opinion would be the main campus of the Adam Smith College.


The best old building would be Ravenscraig Castle which is the first cannon proof castle in Scotland.

While many say the new Milwaukee Art Museum designed by Santiago Calatrava, I think our greatest building is Milwaukee City Hall.

-Built, 1895.
-Worlds Tallest building from 1895 to 1899.
-Tallest building in Milwaukee for 78 years, until passed by a modern skyscraper.
-National Register of Historical Places
-National Historic Landmark
-11 Ton bell that rings 3 times daily.
-Undergoing 60 million dollar restoration currently.
