When a building says 'Phallus'

This is for the most phallic looking buildings in the world, starting with one in my own city of Christchurch, the Hotel Grand Chancellor

Hotel Grand Chancellor, Christchurch, NZ



Tour Gauchetiere, Montreal


Berlin TV Tower


Swiss Re, London


Torre Agbar, Barcelona

please add any more you may find or know of

I believe the Los Angeles city hall falls perfectly in this category. It has also two small attached buildings that complete this peculiar phallus shape. Can somebody post a pic of it. If it is a bird-eye shot it will show better what I'm talking about. Thanks.
