Steel and Glass Stretching to the Sky

Topleftpixel is a cool collection of photos. I liked today's post, which when viewed in 'flash' is pretty cool. I watched a bit of a documentary last night which was highlighting some of the achievements of a German architect who designed several skyscrapers, most notably the Seagram's building on Park Avenue. Anyway, I've never really found skyscrapers to be too attractive. They're collosal mounds of steel and glass, with limited shape. Giant cubes. I suppose though, that in the right light, they can be seen as quite beautiful. But is it just a reflected beauty?
