Many of the newly constructed control towers seem to pretty much be taking on the same shape.

Here are a couple that are innovative in their design or downright ugly, depending on your opinion.

Are there any more out there that come to mind?

hmm...seems like Lelystad, or that Lelystad on the wall can also be the departure time of a flight to Lelystad, departing from Almere International Big grin

Hello,

I think that control tower at Bratislava, Slovakia is unusally shaped.

Seattle's new tower sure looks nice (especially from Air Cargo Road).... I'll try to see if there are any pictures online.
