We'll sure do a skyline world cup, but the problem is that you want some good criteria to rank them. For a skyline cup, we'll probably use the Rate Our Skylines ranking, lining up the cities with the 64 heighest averages.
OMG! Awesome suggestion!
The seedings and draws shall be based on the highest averages as well.
I'm soooo gonna vote!
Thanks!!

Very disappointing to not have a Chrysler banner.

Yeah, had, past tense. In sports, which is the main source of most rivalries these days, QLD v NSW is the big one, or at least so my Central Coast dwelling friend tells me. You don't need to tell me about the past.

Since you mentioned of a cup, shouldn't there be a symbolic trophy designed by SSC to honor the winning country, city or building that should be attached for a whole year to say, a skyline or building thread here of the winner?

Well done Chrysler. To beat modern classics like the Bank of China, Shanghai World Financial Center, Burj Khalifa and Petronas Towers on the trot, shows that the elegant art deco classic still exerts huge appeal for us skyscraper fans.

If you say so. You'd know more than I. I assumed that was the case before recently, but my friend insisted that some rugby thing recently between NSW and QLD was 'the big one'.

Just wanted to ask why we don't have the iconic Hancock Center in Cup of 70s, when saw that the building was toped in 1968. I was convinced that it was build in 70s.
Shame on me.

PTT is my favourite skyscraper. Still, congrats to Chrysler for winning the competition. I prefer Chrysler than ESB to be honest.

I'd like to see Detroit's Renaissance Center in the 70s cup.
