One of the most impsoing buildings I have ever seen is the MI5 building in London. Kinda surprised that it has not been mentioned yet.

Here is a Google link, sorry I am not posting a picture.

https://www.google.pt/search?q=mi5+b...d=0CAYQ_AUoAQ#

It is the headquarters for the British Secret Service and is in the heart of the city and is built like a goddamn fortress.

I walked past with my brother 2 years ago and we both felt uneasy.

Imagine James Bond testing Pen guns in there somewhere!!

The Grande Arche is pretty imposing. It can be seen from the Arc de triomphe which is 5km + away.

design of every building is great and make its own reputation on that place. Master mind Architecture used for build these imposing buildings. shapes, designs, density, paint every part of the building is give her a great look that he deserve. So, I think a great architecture could give a great design for a building..
