My favorite part of this thread is guessing which of these buildings will be rightfully or wrongfully torn down in the future. Which building will become the stopping point where people realize "oh shit that funky hyper modern stuff from the turn of century is really cool, I can't believe we tore so much down" in 2070 or so...
