I never appreciated that building. But it was the tallest in Taiwan before the Taipei 101.

Good call. I visited that building maybe 7 years ago and found it hilarious. Somehow I didn't think to post it though. BTW, to put it into perspective, it is really the only tall building in Tallahassee. A big phallus in the middle of a hilly rural town.

What's the official name of the new Walkie-Talkie building in London? It's neat, but still funny.

Some brutalist scrapers to me are hillarious like the Genex Tower in Belgrade.

Gehry´s Prague creation looks really funny and out of context with the rest of the area.
