Okay, maybe I'm being biased, but it's gotta be SwissRe.

This building has revolutionised London's image.

^Well, it's pretty obvious from your avatar that you're biased.
Though, it is indeed a beautiful building.

I have a question though: What do you consider "Europe" for this contest?

I think that WTT (Warsaw Trade Tower) is the one of the best skyscraper in Europe.

To be honest I don't think the erotic gherkin fits in with its neigbhours!!
WTT is certainly up there, but the Bridge Tower in London I think will leave competition biting the dust!!

Swiss Re, it revolutionized skyscraper building in London, is the coolest, one of the best looking, innovative design and is just so different, plus has had the most hype about it and won many awards!
