I have been reading the discussion about the London City Skyline and I'd like to give my perspective. I have been browsing this forum and this thread for quite some time and I have always enjoyed the different skyline posts. For me, the London City skyline always was hard to really appreciate. Personally I thought this skyline has too many buildings that want to be iconic. Every building has a completely unique shape that want to be the eye-catcher. This doesn't result in a eye-pleasing skyline in my humble opinion. I prefer that only a few buildings stand out surrounded by filler (if that makes sense). The filler is what gives the body to a skyline. Overall I would say that I disliked the skyline.

Last Christmas I visited London after 5 years. I also visited the City and walked around the skyscrapers. This visit has given me a new appreciation for this area in London. Its really fun to walk around and see the interplay between old and new architecture. However, the skyline is still a bit messy due to the many buildings that want to stand out. With the upcoming developments this might be changed for the better however. Some of the new buildings have more conventional shapes that will improve the aesthetic in my opinion. Overall my opinion has changed for the better concerning this skyline. I'm looking forward to visit the city again in a few years and see what I think then.
Your opinion is welcome.

Idk, somehow Frankfurt doesn't get me excited. Paris, Warsaw or London do though

Honestly I have no idea why, maybe it's just too perfect and sleek

Maybe because it looks so evil with the Commerzbank Tower in the evening..

That’s why I like FRANKFURT... and Chicago as well.. they have an evil taste to the skyline.
