What's your favourite skyscraper style?

Yep. This is thread for discussion about architectural style what have used at skyscrapers or why not any building.
If there is some style missing, please note me.

EDIT:****! There happened some error in system or me and I didn't create poll. Could somebody help me?

I tried search function and I don't found anything similar threads, so I decide to make new one.

Here's some pictures about styles:

1.Modern


2.Soviet


3.Functionalism


4.Old Fashioned/Old


5.Ecological


6.Conservative


7.Imagination Flows


8.Dynamic (moving)

http://www.dynamicarchitecture.net/

My personal favourites are Dynamic, Functionalism, Ecological and Imagination flows. But I have chose one and that is Ecological style.
It would be great if architects mix ecological building style with others. That's one reason why I am fan of Foster+Partners.

EDIT:****! There happened some error in system or me and I didn't create poll. Could somebody help me?

My favorite would have to be either Soviet or Modern. I'm not a big fan of the Old style.

What can I say? - Art Deco, Art Moderne, - always on top.

But I have developed a penchant for good clean modern, international, even good ol' Brutalism.

In fact I can appreciate most, just not Po-mo

Industrialism!!! (though i suppose its a branch of modernism) e.g Lloyds of London:



I love cross braces, bare metal and concrete, exterior elevators etc...

But from the Selection you've given us, id have to say Modern and Art Deco
