The Best Lesser-Known Buildings

The iconic 'Walkie Talkie' skyscraper in London has been named the winner of the annual Carbuncle Cup - meaning that it has been named the UK's worst building. The 37 storey tower has come under much criticism and it was said that it "crashes into London's skyline like an unwelcome party guest". The building has previously melted parked cars and has a three storey roof garden which has also suffered at the hands of critics. With all this negativity and controversy around one of London's most recognisable buildings, we thought we'd reflect the attention to elsewhere with some real gems.

Capital Gate - Abu Dhabi

One of the most striking sights to emerge from Abu Dhabi's increasingly famous skyline, the Capital Gate houses the 5-star Hyatt hotel after being completed in 2011. The structure draws inspiration from Pisa, with it's evident 18 degree incline towards the west earning it the obvious nickname of "The Leaning Tower of Abu Dhabi". This record-breaking building provides you with the chance to indulge in a unique dining experience, offering a Sky Brunch atop the 18 degree climb. This truly is a masterpiece, we're sure you'll be inclined to agree.

John Hancock Tower - Chicago

The finest way to view the city of Chicago, the John Hancock Tower boasts 360 degree views of Illinois' most famous city. Named after one of the most famous and prominent Patriots of the American Revolution, the building was perceived to be the world's second tallest building at the time of construction, but has ended up as Chicago's fourth and the world's thirty-third tallest. Overlooking Lake Michigan, this is a sightseer's paradise and a great way to get to grips with Chicago on the whole. It's 360 Chicago observatory also boasts Tilt, giving visitors to get a unique downwards view from the top of the building.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York City

Museum of Art

A work of art in itself, this museum houses a remarkable collection of art which has led it to become well renowned globally. Spanning over 2 million square feet, the building boasts a stunning Beaux-Arts facade which has remained unfinished. However, it's striking columns, eye-catching arches and daunting slab pyramids all contribute to the museum's overall beauty. Get lost in the entrancing Medieval Hall as the collection of European artwork commands your attention. You'll find that The Metropolitan Museum of Art towers over the appeal of the nearby skyscrapers.
