Check out the Oracle Complex in Redwood City, CA. It was used as the HQ of the Robot Company in the movie "Bicentennial Man"

no future here
I agree with gamma about beautiful pieces (Bank of China & Swiss Re but ....
Most of those Asian skyscrapers from Arabia to Taipei look absolutely old fashion. Is that the future? Perhaps. Not very exciting.

Many Asian skyscrapers, especially those from the Middle East, show cultural elements in their modern architecture. Even the gleaming towers of Jin Mao and Taipei 101 have strong cultural elements. Thank goodness globalization hasn't engulfed international architecture totally yet.
