The Empire State Building is the best building in America – at least according to the American Institute of Architects, which has polled its members on the nation’s top buildings. It’s disappointing to see that the Chrysler Building is only at number nine, and the highest placed building that could be considered really Modern is Maya Lin’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial, in tenth place.
