art deco is unrivaled as the most beautiful styling of skyscraper. I love it to death.

sadly most neo art-deco is tacky (e.g., the pseudo Chrysler buildings lining the 401 in North York/Toronto, see link below).

The worst style is epitomized by the Conde-Nasty building in NYC: with the ugly turrets and forest of antennae on the roof. Fugly.
