The other day one of the oldest and most influential Newspapers in the world The Observer has published a modest overview of the most beautiful skyscrapers in the world authored by architecture critic edition of Rowan Moore (Rowan Moore).
The opinion of a famous expert, set out on the pages of The Observer, in turn, was committed for particular criticism on the Internet, making extravagant TOP Moore became one of the hits of the discussions in the English-speaking segment of the Network.
Skyscrapers and what you would call the most beautiful from an architectural point of view?
The Chrysler building, new York
