The City of Capitals reminds me a lot of Broadcasting Tower in Leeds (completed in the same year too)

Oh c'mon, I wasn't supposed to vote since I'm not exactly a skyscrapers fan, but still I have right for a vote, do I?

torre pelli, since with its 231 mt is not a skyscraper I guess it is a swimming pool then? :p

if the spire was counted as part of the entire building's height, then the Commerzbank Tower (300m) would be the first supertall in EU.

but it is not because it's spire (we call it antenna) is not counted and is not a cheating tower either.

so how many skyscraper would there be in europe? c'mon!

The mainstream doctrine says to consider a spire to be part of the building when it comes to calculate the overall height of the building itself if and only if it is structural part of the palace, that is, if it is logically integrated in the shape of the building, as it is the case of Pelli tower. Commerzbank has just an antenna on the roof of a skyscrapers, but it wasn't projected to be perfectly suitable only for the Commerzbank tower: there are thousands of antenna similar in every context, but the Pelli tower's spire it evokes the spiral movement of the building and has a cladding similar to the rest of the skyscraper, so it is logically integrated in the shape and design of the building, and therefore the spire counts for the overall height.

so, in this thread we intend skyscraper in an "european" definition, more flexible, and highrises are completely included...man...look at how many 140-130 mt tall skyscrapers have been nominated...it is ok, it is a game, don't take it too serously!
