Hearst Tower, atop the former National Magazine Building

I used to not like the interaction between the Foster design and the older building below -- I believe I once referred to it as a "postmodern pastiche" -- but I must say it's growing on me.

 

I still wish the tower part were a few stories taller, though -- the proportions seem a little too squat to be graceful.
