Amazing design by SOM, im going for that one! Pelli's design is great too, but a rework from HK's International Financial Center as mentioned by many in this thread.

Go SOM!

SOM looks like an Elvish Tower!!! I love it, very stylish:

This one looks like the Tower of Mordor




Since I love elvish architecture and design, I will go for SOM.
God SOM are great tower designer! They could start atrilogy in that design!

Yes, SOM's proposal is clearly the best, it's just so dramatic.
It's the first time I see these since I was away for almost 2 weeks

In fairness I don't think the renders do the Rogers proposal justice and it'd probably be far better in reality, therefore that's my 2nd choice.

Well young hobbit... I hope for you that Mordor didn't hear what you said because if I was him... After having MY kickass gothic tower compared to Rogers' clunky piece of crap... I would certainly send a bunch of orks to find your ass and teach you some manners!!

But somehow there is a ressemblance indeed.

and now the epic battle begins for the best tower in middle earth (SFO).

I agree that the tower in Mordor is a alot better than that of Rogers'
