I'll go with Seattle. Nice collection of building of many shapes and designs (plus very glassy!).

San Francisco has a beautiful skyline undoubtedly, but it's pretty boxy. Not architecturally diverse in my opinion.

Well, I'm glad we're only dealing with the truly big cities of the country like Nashville and Louisville.
