I prefer the LA Aon. . . the dark glass contrasting with the white piers and the slight taper towards the top.

I'm going to go with Aon Chicago for it's sheer brutal verticality. The glass facade of Aon Los Angeles looks amazing in some shorts but dissapointing in others so I'm not really sure...It'd be great if I could inspect them in person

Aon Houston looks great as well. And there's also an Aon Centre in Melbourne. It's also a box but only 18 storeys/70 metres

Aon Chicago because it is taller and looks cool at night. LA's is cool too (better than most buildings).

Actually looking at those first few pics, Aon LA looks better and its not a bland looking box during the Daytime. But overall, it goes to AON Houston in my opinion.

Definitely Aon Chicago. Looks grand and majestic. The LA one looks like the typical high-rise we often see imho, only albeit better.

The Chicago one is no contest obviously. But I'd rather be in LA. It seems like one of the few skylines with no water, just hills, snowy ones at that also.
