Personally I'm quite partial to a black skyscraper here and there. They look really sleek and break up the ligher colours that tend to dominate most cities. What do you think?

Let's so see some photos of black beauties from around the world. To get started, heres some pics of Sears & Big John

Sears Tower, Chicago


John Hancock Centre, Chicago

I've heard mixed reactions about this one but it'll look fantastic from ground level and from far away.

Interesting towers, but a beauty? The Kio Towers (aka Puerta de Europa) in Madrid:

I always thought that the Trump Tower was more reddish than blackish.
