10 - Williams Tower

Williams Tower is an art deco revival skyscraper in the Galleria area of Houston.  I pass by it every day on my commute.   I love the look of it - it's classic art deco in terms of its symmetry and the terraced ziggurat at the top, but the mirrored glass is very modern.  In the mornings, the glass doesn't reflect much and it looks black, which is very attractive.  It's 64 stories and at night there's a search light on top that sweeps across the sky, searching like the Eye of Sauron.  Looks awesome in the fog.
