The China National Grand Theatre is one of the best public buildings built in the last decade.

Most definitely the sexiest buildings. So much for the eyes to take it all in. Makes you just want to live in the sky.

It would be great to find out which buildings are actually complete, which are U/C, which are in the design/proposal stage and which are just concepts. There are at least four or five which are just concepts (although they are concepts of actual projects which just haven't selected final designs).
