The latest incarnation of the spire looks fantastic, I'm very happy that it is U/C now. Calatrava is great.

some of them look like they SERIOUSLY defy gravity...personally, i like the freedom tower because of the setting and the other towers...Busan is cool but looks a bit unrealistic

The mecca one is nice too but looks just too big...

Pentominium. because of the beautiful design, the extreme slenderness and the cladding.

Only the "Windy City Spire" is competing with Burj Dubai.

And I think it respects the majesty of these two towers.

Daym! I did not vote for (Oryx Tower - Doha) .. I didn't know how impressive the design was until I've seen it in its thread!
