I agree In everything you write I love the craziness of Rotterdam with the unique looking buildings and the creative attitude and thought process concerning new buildings. Add a few 200+ meter towers and this will be one of my favorits

I don't think some of your pictures qualify to be in this thread. I am loving the La Defense pictures though.

Paris overload. Please restrain yourself (although the pictures themselves are really nice).

I like the 'battle' between 'East' (Moscow/ Istanbul) and 'West' (London/ Paris/ Frankfurt). East takes big leaps in getting to the grandest skylines.

Totally right. Paris chapter is closed.
The show must go on.

Competition brings the best out of you I just wish that Istanbul could grow as part of a master plan. I really don't like that skyscrapers, popping out all around the city. There should be certain restrictions and codes as they do have in Paris. The Anatolian side of Istanbul is a lost battle in my opinion. It is a disorganized "concrete jungle".

May I add that Moscow wouldn't really need the potential anyway, its already taller and better organised that all the others! What I'd like to see is perhaps a few midrises around that.

Amazing city, but Brits eat filthy shit. Even pigs eat better.
Don't mean to be offensive but I've been consuming food in London since September 2012 and never experienced such a problem (or any other really), maybe you should check your health just in case??


====

My List for now:

1.Moscow (reasons stated above)
2.Canary Wharf, I don't know why I like it so much, probably because it just looks complete compared to the others, and the cladding of the buildings is superior to, say, La Defence's buildings+ It has great potential.
3.Paris (definitely needs something taller in there, I like the density, quality of most buildings is not bad but not really good either)
4. Istanbul (It has the kind of cluster that I personally do not really like, just like Dubai, it's more spread out instead of having a dense cluster with a pinnacle. It has the potential however, but for me now it's more like towers on a line)
5. Frankfurt, it's just seriously missing the density! Don't really like the Commerzbank which is like the pinnacle and I see on every picture but I really like messeturm tower. And the pictures of Frankfurt have become very repetitive.

Regarding the city of London, I like individual designs and the quality is top, but I don't really wanna rank it because it is just incomplete atm.

Warsaw, Rotterdam and Milan are more like tier 2. No offense. Warsaw seems to have very much potential though, don't know about the others.
