My top3-futuristic ones...

1) Kingdom Center in Riad/Saudi Arabia (Yeah, i like it simple and clearly, but modern )




2) The Skyper in Frankfurt/Germany - Clear Design, glass, simple architecture - maybe not the most exciting one, but for sure the most probable form for the skyscraper architecture in the future, believe me



3) 2 International Finance Center in Hongkong


4) Probably the Bank of China in Hongkong (remind that it was built in 1990 )

I think that the most modern skysrapers of the nowaday world are -

1) - World Tower, Sydney, Australia.

2) - Warsaw Buildings (Intercontinental Hotel & Fiancial Tower), Warsaw, Poland.

3) - London City Hall, London, UK.

Enjoy
