They are all very nice, but to me the two by Norman Foster are the best. They are like jewels. I think the Gherkin just edges out Hearst as the best.

Is cladding the technical term architects are using today instead of curtain wall?

"The lightweight outer skin of a building that does not support the building but does keep the wind and rain out"

I'd say so.

I like the 30 St Mary Axe, London, although I haven't been there, I'm judging just by the pictures. The second according to me would be the twin towers, since I have been there a couple of times.
