As you look up from ground level, Jin Mao looks like it is actually taller than it is because of the distance between each extrusion shortens. But Taipei 101 fails to have that effect. Also, Jin Mao and a much better architectural appearance.

Wow, so shining, this one, like made in silver...

101 is too colorful for me and a little corny. I prefer it without the night light...

Jin Mao. It's the symmetry and overall shape that I don't like about Taipei 101. The JM is more graceful.

If we're talking about nightlights, I prefer Taipei 101's. Overall it's the Jin Mao

They are both tall and very thin... I don't like that, but if I have to chose, i vote the Taipei, for his outstanding position in the skyline.

My vote goes to Jin Mao. Taipei 101 looks nice but it stick out of the skyline like one big *****. Taipei needs some other tall buildings to supplement it.
