Yes! From the Georgia forum is not sufficient.

Many of London's skyscrapers are kitschy, but I think this skyline has moved to #1 in Europe regardless.

I disagree. While London's skyline has gotten better, I think it is far from being #1. I don't think the issue is that the new towers are kitschy, but rather that the buildings do not work well together. It took me a long time to pin point what is it about the London skyline that doesn't quite make me fall in love. Swiss Re is great on its own. So is the Shard as well as the other new towers. They just don't look well together.

Up to a point, we're saying the same thing. One novelty tower here or there is fine, but when you have so many it becomes a bit of a dog's breakfast. Then again, I'm not a fan of Swiss Re, the 'Walkie Talkie', or the 'Cheese Grater'. I do like the Shard though.

For me Canary Wharf saves it all. It's not the biggest or tallest cluster in Europe, but it's the best one. It's elegant, timeless, and a success at street level too. Many of these tall modern clusters going up around the world just don't work very well at the base. They're often hulking in scale and 'street life' killers.
