For me in Minneapolis it's the Wells Fargo Tower





However, if we could take in account buildings that were destroyed, I'd choose the old Metropolitan Building..wow!

In downtown Helsinki there is amasing architecture almost everywhere you look, but there is one building that were completed recently, very nice. I don´t find any pics of it right now, maybe later.

I'm sorry to say, I have to somewhat agree with RedAllert here. Copenhagen is "the city of steeples" and has a thousand years of history and your favourite buildings are a mall and a generally quite bland tall'ish building? Come on

Copenhagen has much, much more to offer than the likes of Ferring and Field's, in my opinion, both modern and old.

I'd have to think about what my favourite is, can't decide right now.

the best new buidling of Leeuwarden is, the achmea tower, 113 meters high



the best old building of leeuwarden is, the oldehove, this 45 meter tower, was originaly designed to be a 120 meter hig church. But it started to stand crooked, so the building progress stopped.

My favorite buildings in Indy are the Pyramids. They are all office buildings.







I also like our Momument Circle.



Christmas Tree, World's Largest.
