I went for Aon - beautiful. Seagram almost had it for me too - absolute classic lines - incredibly elegant. HSBC is good and the others didn't move me

Seagram, it's old but never outdated. Yet has timeless elegance. Fits to be placed anywhere else beside New York and at any particular era -except pre-modern and perhaps far in the future when we live in floating capsules/virtual world

AON is fantastical. HSBC - standard and boring glass.
