Change The Skyline

Basically just switch whichever building(s) to a specific city you think it would look or fit better in it.

e.g.



Photos AND text are fine.

That sounds interesting
Here's my proposal - Sky Tower from the city of Wrocław in Poland in Milan.
I think it's just a bit out of place right now, being just too big for the skyline.

For those people who use Sketchup, you can download a building from the 3d warehouse, place it wherever you want with Sketchup, and visualize it in google earth in 3d, it's very funny!
Maybe I'll try it later to show it here!

Not at all! Great inspiration Kopacz! You show more initiative then most of the forumers in the italian threads...
Don't forget that just few hundreds meters away there will be the City-Life complex complete in 2015, with 3 skyscrapers 208-175 and 150 mts high, so yours in the picture wouldn't be the only tall in Milan... I like your artwork very much.

I always thought the twin towers could blend in perfectly with the japanese skyline because it is mostly of grey colors and very minimal.


And with that background.
