I'm a little surprised about the list. There does seem a bit of a bias towards certain parts of the country. I guess I was also surprised how some buildings were ranked much higher than other well known and appreciated buildings. It did seem to also have a strong urban theme. Frank Loyd Wright's buildings dropped down quite a bit.

The WTC towers one and two were fairly ugly buildings. Just huge saltine boxes as they say. They were impressive in person for there immensity, though. The thing is that they were such a dominating piece of that skyline. I can't imagine riding the Staten Island Ferry to Manhattan and not seeing them. I haven't been back to NYC since 911 and to be honest I am not sure what my response will be to seeing that lack.

interesting list. i think a lot of the other stuff is more impressive architecture than the WTC. they would not be that high on the list if it was pre-9/11. they were rather bland buildings, just tall uninspired square boxes.

Nice to see the legal research building at U of Mich. Law school on the list. Even though I do not think it is that great since I spent so much time there and how crappy the time was. It should look a lot better after they fix it up too.
