Heres the version of the Chicago Spire that is u/c, not the picture you posted, which is massively underscaled to give the impression that it is a little chunky.


Amazing video can be watched at www.thechicagospire.com home page.

Im, dissapointed that Kingkey didnt make the poll. That one looks incredible, concerning 400+ supertalls. Still, some good choices, but I dont know what the Tianjin and Nanjing towers are doing there, they are not final designs or final hights, very rough concepts.
