And which ones don't you like, if I may ask? I also don't like some (very) few towers from the 70ies and 80ies (mainly located in the north-east part of the skyline), but those are barely visible on most pics. However, you can of course have a different opinion in any case

Kollhoff already did that before with the Main Plaza in Frankfurt

You're not the only one with this opinion. I just like the Canary Wharf cluster, that looks great. The rest looks - in my opinion - extremly unharmonious. And I dont like the architecture except of Gherkin in those other clusters.

London has a high amount of different more or less large but seperated clusters, which seem not to be really connected at all from many views (so far). Most of the contemporary and historical architecture is really beautiful and timeless IMO though (such as the Shard, Strata, Tower 42, Ontario Tower and Heron Tower; Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's cathedral, Tower of London and Tower Bridge), and I think the architectural diversity adds much to the London cityscape. What I also love about London is the great urban atmosphere which can hardly be assessed on pictures and is somehow unique in Europe.

Please, IMO nothing special.
IMO it's a diverse and massively spread out skyline. Gives me an impression of a mega city. With much more variety and excitement then most other skylines in Europe including Paris and Frankfurt.

True

For me, Warsaw took the spot amongst European skylines -that it lost to Moscow recently- back (from Rotterdam this time) by the impact of the new tower, Złota 44.

Warsaw had an amazing progress. Still remember that day in 2002 when I first saw the skyline of that city. Nothing to write home about. And look at it now. Sweet.
