16. Cctv Bldg
Speaking of unique, the Cctv headquarters in China, personifies that word in every way. It is so amazingly shaped in the ‘Z-zig zag’ manner and looks super stunning. It may not be the tallest structure or the largest but it is very impressive in terms of design and treatment. The Main Building, with a total floor space of about 380,000 square meters, is divided into five sections: the administration section, the comprehensive business section, the news production and broadcasting section, the broadcasting section and the program production section. The planned new CCTV building can not only represent the new image of Beijing, but also express, in the language of architecture, the importance and the cultural nature of the TV industry.
15. Chicago Spire
The Chicago spire stands tall at no.3 and literally so as it is touted as one of the most significant residential developments in the world and also the tallest. A simple inspiration and a great result that is there for everyone to see by the year 2010. It is inspired by nature and its complexities and beauty. This 609m structure will dominate the Chicago skyline and our hearts too.
