I assume we're talking about skyscrapers, and not just 'buildings'.

In that case:

1. Bank of China, Hong Kong
2. Chrysler Building, New York City
3. HSBC, Hong Kong
4. 2-IFC, Hong Kong
5. Jin Mao, Shanghai
6. Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur
7. Lippo Towers, Hong Kong
8. Empire State Building, New York City
9. Cheung Kong Centre, Hong Kong
10. The Center, Hong Kong

Naturally.

And why not? For example, the Lippo Centre Towers are amongst the most underrated buildings in the world.

Of course. I am sure I could find 10 buildings in China that I like but I am simply unfamilier with all of them. If people from all over contribute and don't pick the same tired choices then we can all learn somthing.
