Well, my friend, even I'm from Russia, and I love my country, but I will talk objectively.... To tell the truth, Rotterdam and Birmingham are ahead of Novosibirsk... It's more like Kiev or Tallinn. Moreover Nvsb is not in Europe, since it's really far away from Urals

its skyline is not very different from most major cities in the post-Soviet space. You can see about 20 such skyline in Russia and Ukraine, so it makes no sense to lay out his photos here. to the same it is not in continental Europe

Yes, unfortunately the city has got many clusters.

At least there is a small chance that the Levent cluster will merge with the Sisli and Bomonti cluster.

IMO Maslak will stady isolated

even London has many different clusters, that's the main reason why London is not everybody's number 1 skyline in Europe.

From a purely aesthetic point of view it may be unfortunate, but having lots of clusters or nodes adds to the urbanity of a metropolitan area.

I have visited both cities Novisibirsk and Birmingham in terms of sky line to me both look the same, however Birmingham has a beautiful canal that goes through the city and a beautiful downtown and its cleaner than Novosibirsk however Novosibirsk has got a good underground/tube system where in Birmingham its just a tram/overground metro! But both got nice shopping malls Bull Ring in Birmingham and Mega mall in Novosibirsk!

That's true. But in this section we are not ranking the best urban areas, or the best fitting skyscrapers. We stick to the model of the so-called "downtown" business district full of highrises. You look at skyline pics and you have absolutely no idea of how that district or the city itself are like in reality.
That's what this thread is all about, a purely aesthetical judgment, often based on north-american skyline standards.

I actually quite like that city. The skyline though isn't exactly that modern. I don't think Birmingham is either really. If Birmingham just got some of it's proposals built it would certainly raise a few eyebrows. The settings of some of the towers promise for an absolutely stunning skyline and cluster.

It's getting the fillers. plenty of 50-90m blocks but none of the big stuff to give it that WOW factor.

Birmingham can be quite deceiving though as most skyline shots manage to get in the council blocks on the edge of the city centre. Close up in the city it can be very different.
