some cities posted here only have 3 or 4 notable skyscrapers in one cluster, so SO143s pics are skyline pics

All the European skylines are getting better and better in terms of density, quantity and architecture

SO143 can say what he wants, but imho Commerzbank and Messeturm are still the most iconic skyscrapers in Europe. The last pics of Frankfurt really show that.

Last time I watched the Anime "Madoka Magica" and guess which silhouettes they used in the background...?

Exactly mate, we don't need to have mass amout of highrises and skyscrapers like Sao Paulo or Manila, European cities can just concentrate on quality, architecture and striking design over those cheap towers. Moscow is on it's way and it's fantastic. London is catching up with it's future projects but Frankfurt skyline is behind which looks like it was built 60 years ago because of it's outdated looking towers which i am not definitely fond of. But it will be alright if it starts buildings some glass towers like One World Trade Cetnre, The Pinnacle, Bank of America New York, International Finance Centre Hong Kong etc. Anway ima just ignore the haters if they are bothered by those beautiful pictures. cheers

Can't wait to see the iconic tower "The Pinnacle" rising soon

Lol, so Frankfurt's towers look even 60(!!) years behind? If you said 20 or 30 years one could almost take your trolling serious, but not like that...

[ironic mode]Frankfurt lacks in iconic, high quality glas claddings. WHY u CANNOT understand this?! Its sooooo obvious. [/ironic mode off]

Half of Frankfurts scrapers or more got a glascladding. Commerzbank and MesseTurm belong both to the most iconic skyscrapers in the world (although I dont like the Comnmerzbank Tower). Frankfurt is a 700.000 inhibitant-city, almost booming like the Alpha++++ City London.

OMG SHAME ON YOU, architects, that you are not able to design high quality, iconic towers which dont suit SO0815s taste!
