Cool thread , very nice !

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

My nominations go for:

Nagakin Capsule Tower by Kisho Kurokawa in Tokyo.
Not actually a skyscraper, it's rather low rise in comparison, but you can barely get any more futuristic than that, even though it's so retro now.

and
Umeda Sky Building by Hiroshi Hara in Osaka

For Australian standards Aurora Place would be the most futuristic.

This is the outdoor covered courtyard.



Some pics of the actual building. (There are two; apartments and office tower).

I've never understood how anyone can find the TurningTorso to be a futurisic or decent skyscraper....but hey, each to his own, and that's going off topic.

Anyway, in no particular order, my top 5:

Swiss Re - London
Bank of China Tower - HK
Lloyds Building - London
2IFC - HK
The Centre - HK

.....London and Hong Kong I guess..... lol

Special mention to LBT and Bishopsgate tower for future London!!
