Are you all forgetting that London has two skylines? The City and Canary Wharf, Are you also forgetting that London has several new super tall skyscrapers under construction.
In my opinion--
1. London
2. Paris (la Defence)
3. Madrid
4.Frankfurt
5. Moscow

Several? Do you have any example of Supertalls in London except of the Shard?

Your picture doesn't show up, btw.

everybody knows that Frankurt has the best skyline in Europe.
Nice skyline has also: Paris, London and Rotterdam.
I don't like skylines of Madrid and Moscow.

I think that Paris is the best in Europe, it's really beautyful! The second one is Moscow. Third is London. Fourth is Madrid(I like it because of unusual background) and the last one is Frankfurt-the skyscraper cluster looks nice, but the rest city is boring and a little bit ugly.

(300m + is nothing so special anymore to be a "supertall". Projects like Phare or Pinnacle no supertall because 3 Meters are missing. On the other Hand Shard in one category with Burj Khalifa or WFC. Simply no no no no.)
And of course he cannot know, that this is a thread about current best looking skyline and not future best looking skyline.

So lets welcome a new user and contributer to this thread.

^ Generally I'd agree with the content of your post, but buildings 600m+ are already considered "megatalls" (although only 2 buildings, Burj Khalifa and Makkah Royal Clock Tower, fit in this category so far).

Even if so I think the SSC need a reform, cause this is still missleading.

Basically it is okay to use 3 categories (I think we don't need more), but the criterias are simply not accurate nowadays anymore.
Towers like shard and Hermitage are sure in one league and category with Pinnicale or Phare and not WFC. The difference is simply too big.

If you ask me, the solution would be only to douple the size of the skyscraper category to 400m (Highrise 100-200, skyscraper 201-400, supertall 401+).

I would also prefer the category "supertall" to 400m buildings or taller.
it would match better nowadays!!
