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?

Lelystad (EHLE) has a very nice one too.

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,

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