too many wonderful buildings. it's really tough. but if i reduce the options to skyscrapers only, it would have to be hongkong's bank of china. it's not the tallest in the skyline, but somehow it still gets my attention on most hk skyline pics. not even the massive 2ifc can take that attention. oh yeah but i love 2ifc too.

The White City - Fine Arts Building

For different reasons, one of my favorite buildings is The World's Columbian Exposition of 1893 (aka the "ideal city," the White City) Fine Arts Building now the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry.

There's so many but for now, off the top of my head, I'd have to say The Gherkin always catches my eye.
