Some really beautiful buildings here but the best so far, for me have got to be London, United Kingdom and Budapest, Hungary.

Australian Parliament is outstanding. It's difficult to design a modern building/complex that embodies and symbolizes strongly the country to the world and its own nation. They've succeeded in building something that is instantly iconic and uniquely Australian. Well done.

Looks like Budapest takes it by a bunch. I had never seen Australia's before, anyone else very disappointed?

Good post T/B, I was about to do the same as the first pic doesn't quite do it justice.
