Agree for istanbul... In a few years it will be great.

Could we stop posting always the same boring photos of London. i know english people love their city but it's just too much (and to be honest this thread is great but London is just far far away from Frankfurt, Moscow, Paris).

I think you missed one to one Frankfurt vs London Tournament it was a great show though.

And can we see more pictures of Italian and Spanish cities as well? This thread is full of pictures Frankfurt cluster ( made with 80s looking buildings) to be frank its boring really.

I think the problem with Moscow is that most of the skyline is a mass of commieblocks on one side and then the 'small' Moscow City with in my opinion mostly very random looking supertalls that look out-of-place.

London and Paris look great and I personally love London as a city but I think Frankfurt still has the better skyline.

I am suprised you all still don't have him on your ignore list. That's what an ignore list is made for.

I laugh cause the same positions in Germany. They wrote the same thing that the best skyline in Frankfurt, in Moscow, only corruption and all the skyscrapers were built with money from oil, and the rest of the population are the poor slaves . About London and Paris, they say, are too small and not dense. Any criticism of the Germans do not perceive!

Now he is!
By the way nice Paris pic! La Defense's density is impressive. Unfortunately it's very boxy...but classy! It just needs some higher towers. The proposed super talls are in my opinion pretty tacky and over top though...

Phare is my fav project in Europe. Can't wait to see it someday.
I tried to paint Phare into this picture. Hope the fotographer forgives me. And hope the the french guys, too. I've not much experiences with paris skyline overpaints. So maybe the position, shape and high of the tower is not 100% right.

The best skyline would be if to combine Paris and Moscow main cluster skylines

Seems like after we had a big explosion in this thread, Frankfurt local fans are kinda getting started to appreciate other cities as well.

It's really great to see, though.

Why? Imho it's terrible and doesn't fit into their skyline. I think the Foster design was the best one to choose. But maybe I'll change my mind if its built.

organic like a life-form. Unique design. I simply like it.

...........
I painted the other projects into the picture. Paris in 10 years with Phare(best project), Hermitage(worst project, imo, because of out of place), Air, Carpe Diem and Majunga. I think D2 will not be visible and Genrali and Signal are cancelled if I renember right.
