BoC, maybe not just the best of the decade, but century. Central Plaza and Petronas a distant joint second.

US Bank Tower and Conde Nast, Commerzbank are good. Petronas and Bank of China I sometimes love, sometimes hate. The rest are either average or just awful.

Bank of China in HK is simply the best . Nothing beats it . True masterpiece of the modern architecture . Other towers that can get more than 10 out of 10 from me are Petronas Towers in KL and Jim Mao Tower in Shanghai . Other towers posted in here that I like are:

4. US Bank Tower in LA
5. Gas Company Tower in LA
6. Central Plaza Hong Kong
7. Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt
