I've seen pictures of lots of "not so good" skylines in here. People were tiering cities. I think Birmingham should be tiered like the others are.

For what it's worth my favourites are London, Moscow, Paris, Rotterdam, Kyiv, Istanbul, Frankfurt.

No particular order. They are all fab.

You are right! That would be really boring.

Kiev has a big dense midrise skyline.

Kiev lacks defining and iconic structures..

It looks impressive in certain shots due to it's size.. But the buildings are pretty samey tbh..

Still, Kiev is certainly impressive .

What a mess! Skyscraper design like that comes off as uncultivated. It's a new thing so there's a tendency to try too hard. It seems in cities (US, Canada, Australia) that have been building them for decades, there's more interest in classic lines than showy trendiness.

Many cities are in danger of looking like a jumbled mess. Hopefully over time the designs will become more refined.

from wikipedia: The inhabitants of Warsaw still commonly use nicknames to refer to the palace, notably Pekin (Beijing in Polish, because of its abbreviated name PKiN (Pałac Kultury i Nauki), Pajac ("clown", a word that sounds close to Pałac), Stalin's syringe, the Elephant in Lacy Underwear, or even the Russian Wedding Cake.[6][7] The terrace on the 30th floor, at 114 metres, is a well-known tourist attraction with a panoramic view of the city. The best view of the city is jokingly said to be from the terrace as it is the one place in the city where the building itself does not obscure the view.

I think it's better to demolish it ... the building insults polish people feelings ....

I don't understand how the photographer did it.

At the foreground you can see the Akasya towers which is on the asian side.

At the background the Levent cluster.
