The one-offs that make Edinburgh brilliant
F&F Tower, Panama
Panama isn't known for having 'amazing' skyscrapers, but the F&F Tower, otherwise known as the Revolution Tower, might just change all that, thanks in part to the Emporis judges' decision to award it seventh place. The tower, which resembles a strand of DNA, can be found in the city's financial district and is just one of a number of skyscrapers to spring up in Panama in recent years. Others include the 192-metre-tall Venetian Tower and the Panamera, which will house Latin America’s first Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

Is there any extra explanation for why the towers have been ordered in that way, because to my eyes it's Al Hamra, then the Scandic Tower and Reflections. KK-100 tower gets the comedy vote, both for the silly name and how completely out of place it looks against the Shenzhen skyline.
There are several stunning and unique buildings in this list but the winner goes to a generic looking skyscraper in New York! If they couldn't even be bothered to give it a name it can't be that special!!
They will not last long, Just wait for the big earthquakes come WHY waste their money on building them that high??
