In Atlanta, for my money the most modern building is the 60 story Suntrust Tower.

For Bay City, hands down, the Delta College Planetaruim in Downtown, sometimes reffered to as the "Upside down KFC bucket."

In Columbus there's only a handful of modern looking buildings. Two that stick out to me are:

The Wexer Center for the Arts

The Convention Center also looks pretty awesome from a top-down view from space :

By far the most modern building in Providence is the headquarters of the Gtech corporation, just now wrapping up construction in the Capitol Center district. Here is an assortment of pics I took of it over the last few months:

Main lobby:

Streetfront retail space occupied by Fidelity Investments. Two more retail spaces on the other side of the building will be restaurants overlooking the river walk:

Providence generally trends toward the traditional in new construction, as you can see in the background buildings in my pics, none of which are more than a few years old themselves. For now, Gtech is hands-down the most modern building in the city, but there are several other good examples proposed to be built in the near future.

The Van Andel Research Instatute has to be one of the most daring buildings in Grand Rapids, MI. A second phase will be added on the back side of this building which promises to make VAI a real eye poping landmark for my home town.

The Sprint Center is pretty cool! Hard to believe that Elerbee Beckett was the same firm that designed the hideous Charlotte Arena. We got a red brick monolith and y'all got sleek glass. Sigh.

Detroit isnt exactly known for modern architecture, the best that Detroit has is the Ren Cen.

Very cool looking. But I get this horrifing vision of the whole structure tilting right into the water in front of it.

The new Boston Institute of Contemporary Art opened Saturday.

Modern and Norfolk are 2 words that aren't mentioned together too often i'm afraid. <_< We've got one coming through the pipeline that the planning commission is giving it hell right now but I hope it gets approved.
