i don't like Burj dubai(but i like the index and lighthouse very much in dubai)
I think it's just very tall tower( so popular because 808m) without any expression...
so...My favorite ones:
1. Russia Tower
2. The Constellation (but i think it's antenna or fantasy)
3. ICC
4. Freedom Tower

Of course the tallest will win.

And that's an old Chi-Spi render that doesn't show it's true essence.

I have to vote for the Chicago Spire. This building has a lot of design features that counteract external forces simply, and it is a building that is being built with green engineering in mind. And it looks great too. What's not to love?
