Both are awesome. But for me Q1 is one of the most beautiful towers in the world, so my vote goes to Q1

To Me Eureka is PURE MELBOURNE

Q1 is also a stunning tower...I cant vote because I am from Melbourne..

Eureka in a skyline context

Huh, why is it stupid? I think it looks great (especially compared to some of the older ones!) And of course, heights are completely accurate

I reckon most Katsaldis designs wouldn't rate very high, since the designs are quite unique and differ from the kind of designs that are commonplace throughout the rest of the world. I doubt Republic or even World Tower would have many fans outside Australia.

But it's Melbourne architecture and I'm glad that most major projects are designed by local architects.

IMHO (not that it counts) Q1 is a 'safe' design. Easy on the eye and not really taking any 'bold' architectural 'leaps of faith'. Overall a great addition to the GC skyline.
Eureka has a very unique design, 'bold' in it's interpretation, angular at best.
First impression, you either like it or you don't, but may become an acquired taste.
Both compliment their respective skylines which I believe holds true value.
Direct comparison, Q1 is instantly appealing but boring....
Eureka commands attention if not for it's sheer height....(it is the taller to roof...fact).

/\/\/\/\/\ so true...of course in these types of polls Q1 will win because it is clearly a more 'universally appealing'.....it is tall, sleek and very very safe....a very nice tower...but seriously, for overall cutting edge design and aesthetics (not to mention the obvious height difference) my vote goes to Eureka......

No, Broadie post pics of BOTH towers, and he posted those construction pics as a favour for you because some of you complained that a bit of the crane was costing Eureka marks.

On the other hand, you guys are just blanket posting more and more shots of Eureka, offering obscure theories why it's losing (ie q1 is boring, real architecture is eureka), posting height comparisons when it's a poll about design etc etc. I mean just give it a rest, it's meant to be for international folk as the heading says, they can make up their own minds!
