Taranix,

Those buildings from Grenoble that appear in the skyline, Tour Belledonne, Tour Mont-Blanc and Tour Vercors are considered high-rises, with 31 floors each one.
http://www.emporis.com/statistics/ta...renoble-france

According to international rules, a high-rise is a building with the height between 35 and 100 meters tall.
http://www.emporis.com/building/stan...-rise-building

So they are not low-rises or old buildings as you put in bold. Anyway, thanks.

Maybe not the densest skyline in Europe (yet) but the buildings are IMHO design and quality wise one of my absolute favourites, especially the walkie talkie and of course the gherkin, very eye pleasing structures or should i say works of art ?

Yes, but of course this is a work of 10-15-20 years

At this moment, a concept is being made for the new Museum of Modern Arts. This is at the moment in a communist building, a former famous furniture store, but it was bought by an investor. Just after it was bought, the Warsaw administration placed it on the list of protected buildings. So now there is a battle going on, but the latest news tells us the building would be replaced by this (maybe turning?) 180-m building.





On the Defilad Square (the big square around the Palace, the 3rd largest in the world) at first that Museum of Modern Arts will be build. This was the last chosen concept, but a new one is being made.



Warsaw showed the plan for the square a few years ago. This is a concept with all height restrictions
