Have you seen the city from south?

It's not the best European skyline but it's also not "4 towers standing alone".

Canary Wharf alone has a nicer skyline than most other European cities. I'm a little bit envious...

Actually Evolution Tower in Moscow has a little bit prettier view...

This one looks definetely better I expected! But im frightened about the top (that round part might ruin it all). Although nothing beats Tunning Torso in "Twisted Towers Competition.

Agreed, although the Evolution Tower is a solid runner-up.

Indeed, the Baltimore Tower will be an excellent addition to CW.

^ Brilliant pictures of CW. I sometimes feel that CW is really underrated by people.

Cause people are bored of classic boxy shapes and they ltry to look for original form thinking it's more ambitious solution (for example this -> http://www.layoverguide.com/wp-conte...afna-Qatar.jpg - but for me this is a piece of shit). That's not me, imo CW is excellent and 100 times better than the City with its dildos and walkie-talkies.

Agree, even though I like original forms a lot. It's ok to have a few, but when the whole skyline is made of them, it just looks bad.

Searching for originality and an unique form might be dangerous.
Look at this comparison

^ Yeah, I see exactly where you are coming from. I personally believe that after some years, the City will look beautiful. Althought some of the designs are experimenting - it is done to a very high standard unlike other towers around the world.

However, as a whole Canary Wharf does look classic.

From distance it's combination of both that look's so superb.

Rotterdam, one of the only cities where a bridge enhances the modern skyline so.

And one of a few you see Skyline shots from street level! Most of the images I post here were taken from street level view.
