Gherkin, London for me. When you look at each of it's cladding/reflection, you will see the real quality glass and piece of arts. the others are also great too.

i've been to petronas twin towers and i must say petronas twin towers cladding is the best that i've ever seen. i don't see reason why 30 St Mary Axe, London has the best cladding cause to me the building just a glassy building and the cladding is just too ordinary.while the petronas cladding is just perfect mix between glass and aluminium. just my 2 cents..

Nothing special on Royal Bank Plaza and Hearst tower's facades.

My favourite:
1. Petronas Towers (voted)
2. Jin Mao
3. SwissRe

Those fins that stick out has a purpose and it is to give shade for the windows. It is not just there for looks!
