    What is your favorite building, or the most interesting you've ever seen?

    I personal like the Jubilee Church in Rome

    This Opera house in Tenerife is pretty amazing too.

    Looks way too happy to have existed at the heart of the "Evil Empire", though...

    My favourite building would have to be Empire State Building in New York, simply because I've been there several times with family and friends and have some great memories.

    I'd like to visit the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpar. I saw a documentary on how two seperate companies were employed to build a tower each. This turned into a construction race on a massive scale.

    Overall, I'm always impressed with the size of structures... can't wait to see the Burj Dubai!

    The Center Pompidou is another great one. It's like Piano turned the building inside out.

    The amazing thing about the Sagrada Familia church is that it is still under construction. Whole blocks of other interesting buildings are going to be demolished so that Gaudi's masterpiece can be finished true to his plan. Oh, and not one ounce of cement has been used in this painstaking construction of amazing stonework. I think they need another 50 years or so to finish it.

    you know as beautiful as it looks, it looks like a place of devil and not God. Those grey morbid walls...like tears of people make this church a castle of satan. Beautiful evil...
