Me too, I'd gladly take that over anything going up in Toronto right now. Not that Toronto's building crap, but that Bangkok building is just gorgeous.

Charlotte has far too good taste for that and will drive us in the opposite direction! Reminds me of the famous Redneck Mansion:

Indeed. The Netherlands have got some of the best modern architecture in the world. But sometimes some architects and urbanists should be protected against themselves...

Most cities define the term empirically; even a building of 80 meters (262 feet) may be considered a skyscraper if it protrudes above its built environment and changes the overall skyline.

According to your definition, even European cities are full of skyscrapers.

I don't know if it had been post before but i've to post the singapore marina bay hotel as one of the ugliest skyscraper. I know there is impressive things in and on it (like the pool at 200m high) but it's still ugly for me.
