And of course there's the...







The infamous Taipei 101 with its bamboo-inspired segments!

And...



Highcliff, one of the tallest residential tower in Hong Kong with a bold design.

Do you mean Highcliff? Here are a few more photos :



Highcliff is tucked behind Summit. There are actually 2 monsters on that site.

This rather fat building incorporates several geometric elements, and the overall effect is quite nice.



1 PPG is my favourite Pittsburgh skyscraper. Its pointy motif is very interesting, blending in classical elements with modern design.

One of my favorite skyscrapers is without a doubt the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco:





I also like the Bank of America Center in Houston:

I posted that Seoul counterpart (a church) in the skyscraper twins thread :



I don't like how they made it rectangular on one side. I still prefer Pittsburgh's 1 PPG.

Hong Kong's L'Hotel Repulse Bay went from luxury residential to serviced apartment, and to this day is still not occupied. It has a very flowery feel :




That's indeed one of my favourite residential around the world--- and it's true that it has not been occupied--- much like a symbol of architecture in Repulse Bay region.

These Vancouver residentials around False Creek incorporate a lot of green glass. While each individual building isn't so special, when they all come together, it gives a very unique look :

These Vancouver residentials sucks--- looks like they are made by Greeks.
