8. Trump Tower

Trump Tower atrium

Ah yes, what can we say: wall to wall gold and marble. Who else would build an atrium that literally feels as if you were inside of an Egyptian Pyramid? After Trump’s election as President of the United States of America, this public space became increasingly less accessible — though the building is legally required to be, since Trump received height bonuses for constructing the spaces here, which include the lobby, lower level concourse and two terrace gardens above.
