I always liked the PPG tower in Pittsburgh. It is a skyscraper that resembles a castle.

No offense, but I also think your choce is quite ugly.
Because that reminds me of silkworms and bugs.
But i respect your choice as long as people are different and beauty is in the eyes of behoder.

I guess we're even. but how does it remind you of bugs? The appearance of the building or the name?
