Why not say all spired churches with naves look alike and are cheap imitations of each other?

I saw this building last week. It looks nice to me at first view.

Is that even a real skyscraper, or is that just a statue?

I think...

Chicago Spire is silly looking.

Sears Tower is ugly but big and the thing has presence.

ESB is beautiful, probably the best scraper in the world.

Transamerica Pyramid is okay.

Ryugyong is nice in a sinister sort of way. If you start an evil empire you can base it there and everyone would understand why.

Freedom Tower is okay but could've been better. I like the other buildings in the complex and love the street level stuff for the most part.

Trade one and two from the destroyed WTC were very ugly but were big and had even more presence than Sears.

Burj al Arab is goofy but doesn't bother me.

Burj Dubai is fine looking but does bother me for some reason.

Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque looks cheap or plastic but it's okay.

It's a real building, a real hotel... Called Tianzhi Zhuangyuan 天子庄园 in Hebei, China. It depicts the deities Fu, Lu and Shou.

The name literally means "Son of Heaven Garden". Son of heaven means the Emperor of China, so more correctly it translates as something like Emperor's Garden or Imperial Garden. Sounds weird in English, but in Chinese it makes sense.
