1. Aon
2. Seagram
3. Trump
5.Cheung Kong

The Aon is a box but it reminds me of graceful classical buildings!

Thats my favorite highrise from Rotterdam, i love the glass. Its not has boxy as others.

Here is a boxy scraper.


The spanish version of the aon center. In my opinion it has better coronation and corners. Not has tall of course but very nice and elegant. Torre Picasso

Not to be pretentious, but, anybody who knows anything about the history of architecture is going to say the Seagrams Building. It is probably the most important building in skyscraper history. How many (albeit, bad) copies of good ol' Mies' building have there been?

Good ol' Mies and good ol' Modernism.

Why does the oldest have to be the best?

I much prefer the Cheung Kong and London's HSBC Tower to the Seagram.
