Louis Sullivan's spectacular masterpiece Guarantee Building in Buffalo. It must be seen to be believed.

This building is considered the father of the modern highrise building. Even though it is highly decorative it uses strong vertical lines to emphasise its height. It has a sister building in St. Louis and together these buildings are credited with breaking architecture out of the old time wedding cake way of builing highrises.

It's a shame they don't build 'em like that anymore. Look at all that intracate detailing!
