well, i think this thread should get deleted and restarted since some beautiful supertalls are not included (Shanghai Tower, Ping'an, Ocean Heights etc.),
while otheres will probably never get build (Solar Tower, Chicaco Spire etc.)...

yeh that's true. also i think the towers which are not even approved, shouldn't be on that list neither.

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.
wjfox .. how come you have voted at least 8 times according to my count ??

doesn't that take away from the point of a poll ???

I've been thinking for some time what to choose but ultimately I chose Burj Khalifa (burj dubai).
I don't get it how can someone chooses Solar Tower, for me it's just big chimney, if it hadn't been as high noone would have ever noticed it on this forum.
And yes, I think it should be updated because in these 3 years some things have changed.
