Columbia doesn't have any uber-modern, funky examples of contemporary architecture, but it does have a few examples of modern architecture. Which one do you think is the best?

Just in case those not familiar with these structures would like to vote as well, here are some photos.

MTC has a new building, well fairly new, in that business park at Farrow and Parklane. I don't have any photos of it, but it is a prett sharp looking building.

Not as good as the Meridian, though. It looks like something out of Batman.

I think that the Meridian is the best. I love the little spike things that stick out near the top

The Adesso project will be the best once its built. It will have the round corner piece and a nice mix of materials on the exterior. I think the Convention Center is a great example as well. It will be interesting to see how the modern designs hold up to time.

This vote is a tough nut to crack; but I went for the Meridian. I wouldn't even consider anything out in the boonies.

I voted for the First Citizen's tower. It's a nice, classy, modern building. They all are, but it has a little something extra that pushed it over the top for me. Cool thread. ;)

I went with the convention center on this one, since I tend to think of modern architecture as consisting of lots of glass and steel and the convention center is what comes the closest to doing so.

Honestly, i know this might sound offensivee....but I think the most modern building in Columbiia is the freakin Heart Center at Palmetto Richland! :rofl:

Well, hospital architecture these days isn't nearly as boring as it used to be--some of it is downright impressive in fact--so that's not as far-fetched as it may sound.

Here are pictures of Palmetto Health Richland's Heart Center:
