The Shard, London Bridge, should probably be in that list.

Obviously, the 30 "most famous" ones would be the ones that get the most hits on google. How else would you define "famous"?

I'd say that the Petronas Twin Towers and Pearl Orient TV Tower are a few steps up from where you placed them. Bank of China Building and Taipei 101 are a few steps down.

Yeah the Shard in London is taller, "cooler" and more stunning than Canary Wharf and the Gerkhin.

Maybe it's newness makes it a bit less famous, but yeah maybe it should be on the list, seeing that it's now the tallest building in the EU.

For London I would take out Canary Wharf and add the Shard, and of course Big Ben.
