^ I really like that twisting tower in Moscow. It looks really cool and shows the creativity and good architecture, but we have to wait for the cladding.

Edit: I also like the One Lime Street Square tower in the picture below, which is situated between the walkie talkie, cheese grater and gherkin.

The architecture of CW and City are completely different. They are competing each other by planning, proposing, approving and buildings new towers every year but The City seems to be winning the competition as it's architecture is superior and the quality of buildings are more advanced and interesting. Quality over quantity IMO.

It would be great if there were about 3x 150m and 2x 200m buildings around the Shard. New mini cluster could be created there as well.

oh dear, london is going to be a mess. that's neither what the city needs nor what it deserves. structurewise its the classical european city, and the attempt to turn it into a kind of an asian city, an inarticulated mass of high buildings, will be regreted in the future.

Np, here is a huge panorama taken from Sapphire, the highest building in Turkey. I added to locations of the clusters which can be seen.

Absolute nonsense, a huge global city like London has multiple centres and the mini clusters springing up throughout the city will provide distinct landmarks and create a very special series of skylines, unlike anything anywhere else.

why are you repeating the same question which you already knew the answers.

London doesn't have a masterplan of what can be built where, but in general is creating clusters of tall buildings around major transport interchanges, with office towers in the City and Canary Wharf, and residential in Vauxhall, Elephant & Castle and along the South Bank.

keep in mind 90% of people dont care about skyscrapers. they use to tolerate them, as long as they stay "in their areas" (ie. business districts). i'm sure there will be many londoners who dont want them to sprawl all over their cities and overshadow londons great landmarks. from my pov, london just doesnt need to change it's look. also, that new boom appears to me as a matter of profit and not as a matter of urban planning.

its a different thread, the issue bothers me and there is no reason why it shouldnt be discussed more intensely.

Also the city skyline looks to be stretching further out with potentially 2 180-200m towers at the goodsyard site.

Fair points, but British cities have never really been masterclasses in town planning, we have dabbled and there has been a bit of a renaissance of late, but I think these concepts are more European than British.

I think you are wrong to say that London skyline will be a mess in the future. Well, the truth is that London has always been a mess when it comes to skyline or the street layouts. Here's some pictures that show London had multiple mini clusters since the beginning of 16th century.

Taken from above 38000 ft which shows London is not a planned city and in fact it is very unpredictable when it comes to variety in architecture.

The top picture above of the city cluster must be ten years old lol, the new shoreditch cluster will also have the principal place tower 165m, one crown plaza 140m and the shoreditch tower 120m, add them to the goodsyard towers and it will be ANOTHER awesome new cluster for london

North American skylines are great, Europe missed out on the old Art Deco skyscrapers because of World War Two, but canary wharf was designed on the Canadian skyline model so has the internationalist style that North America is known for, I like it
