CTF Tower in Tianjin, China, is world's newest phallic symbol

Even though the 20th Century was mostly about ever taller urban penises, adding biomorphism to the "supertall" structures creates a lifelike icon, fully realized in Tianjin's new CTF Tower, designed by Chicago-based architects Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill (SOM).

This building is also reminiscent of Apollo rockets from NASA, ready for liftoff! Even though I prefer more horizontal, flowing, female-influenced buildings, as far as skyscrapers go, this one is a gem.
