Favourite Supertall Project

Favourite Supertall Project


Listed here are the tallest skyscraper projects in the world right now, in order of height (starting at 450m). Vote for your favourite. It's multiple choice, so you can vote for more than one. A few projects have been excluded until we have more info on them (e.g. Al Burj, and the mile high tower in Jeddah).

Please try to avoid voting for a building just because it's in your own city/country. Also, try to avoid voting purely on the basis of height. Choose the project you genuinely feel has the best design and will have the greatest impact in the world of architecture.

This sucks, I can't add more than 15 options. I'll have to get one of the Admins to fix this...

Well, given the option, I vote World Financial Centre - Shanghai. A thing of beauty, not over-designed to intricate oblivion or shamelessly tacky like most of the others here. Fan-tas-tic building.

The Burj Al Aram looks cool as a single tower, but i think the Freedom Tower in NYC fit's in best with everything around it.

My choices:

Burj Dubai - ludicrous height... the world's first hypertall, an incredible feat of engineering.

Chicago Spire - beautiful design, will give a really "fresh" look to Chicago's skyline.

Sumida Tower - Tokyo lacks world famous landmarks. This will certainly become famous!

Solar Tower - very futuristic concept. I love the idea of generating so much clean energy from a structure like this.

Lotte Super Tower - very nice facade, will look especially good at night when it's lit up.

Freedom Tower (1WTC) - okay, so the name is a little tacky. But the tower itself is a worthy replacement, bold and soaring, and has evolved nicely from the earlier proposals. The neighbouring towers (by some of the world's top architects) will compliment it really well.

Burj Al Alam - exceptionally good design, I love the curves and organic feel it has, especially towards the crown/pinnacle. It's probably the best skyscraper design to come out of the Middle East in my opinion.

World Financial Center - a sleek, soaring and futuristic tower, perfect for Shanghai.

International Commerce Center - compliments the IFC extremely well. I love how the 2 towers form a gateway into the harbour.

It's a multiple choice poll.
Anyway, a lot of these projects are nice (and I voted for those) but that doesn't mean the same one will become supertall legends.

Fair enough.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm sticking with my 1 vote for Burj Dubai, the most exciting, ground-breaking, beautiful project of this century for me. And that's with all respect to the wonderful city of Shanghai.

I chose:

Burj Dubai
Freedom Tower
SWFC
ICC

The reason for this is because i think that 50% of those towers will not get built. Some of them seem a bit to mad. Also these towers i have picked are actually under construction and look fantastic.

SFWC and ICC are supersucks... These towers are abominable...
Why poll includes Manila's tower? Is it skyscraper?

edit:

Done.

I selected the BD for obvious reasons. The building's design is stunning, groundbreaking and already in existence. Oh, and it's utterly smashing all World's Tallest records to boot.

The Burj al Aram and Chicago Spire are tied for runner up. Both towers will be utterly stunning once complete, and will be a must see for any skyscraper enthusiast with the means to do so.
