It has to be said - it's not exactly Cheung Kong's most flattering picture is it?

The Seagram Building by Mies van der Rohe is the only revolutionary building in this list. The others are nice, but imo they are just copies of this boxconcept. Unbelievable that Seagram has such a low position in a poll on a skyscraperforum.

Are you saying only revolutionary buildings should be top? That imitations, despite 'imitation being the greatest form of flattery', cannot outdo the original with its own added twists?

Cheung Kong Center. Aon is my runner-up because it has sheer height, but Cheung Kong just has a certain design to it. The slightly rounded corners, the pale blue glass that reflects so well.

Totally agreed!!! I am amazed that so many people chose something other than the Seagram... looks like a lot of people need to crack open some arch. history books!

Without the Seagram, all the others on this list would not exist!

Originality has nothing to do with being the best.
