Better 610m observation/communication tower?

So, which is the better design for a TV tower? I know neither is built and construction for the Sumida tower hasnt even started, but at the moment, which do you like more/ are more excited about? Both are around 610m tall and seem to have observation decks around 450m up. Small towers like the CN tower and Jakarta tower need not apply.

Guangzhou TV tower






Sumida TV tower

I chose Guangzhou as well, but Sumida is ok and I think the Tokyo skyline really needs something like that.

Sumida. I find the Guangzhou design to be extremely ugly myself.

Since when did a 553 metre tower become small?

Guangzhou is miles better and very unique, I think. That's what Tokyo would need...

Guangzhou's is stunning! The Sumida looks like a knockoff of CN Tower!

I like both. The Sumida tower looks like a mix of a stretched Eiffel Tower and an ordinary TV Tower.

Absolutely Guanzhou one! Its the best TV tower design I've ever seen!
It's state-of-art in structure, and Sumida state-of-awkward.

I prefer Guangzhou TV tower because the design is new, whereas the other tower looks like any other.

Guangzhou TV tower by far.
Tokyo tower looks better with the new design but still miles away from Guangzhou.
