Oko Tower looks as if he would fall over.

There is literally no point in comparing European Skylines to the likes of Manhattan, Chicago, Shanghai, or Dubai. Each and every City has different circumstances and history. European Cities generally have more surviving History in it's architecture, thus

A) It's harder to get planning permission to build to towers.
B) It's harder to find room to build tall buildings and/or cluster(s).


For the most part - due to part A, most skyscrapers that are built amoung historical parts of a City in Europe need to be of the highest standard. This is why I personally believe that European Skyscrapers have some the best design and architecture in the whole Skyscraper World.

For some European Cities - such as Warsaw or Frankfurt, it is much easier to build a Cluster in an area because most of the City was heavily bombed during WWII.

In other circumstances Skylines are born out of districts that had former use but have been made redundant. A brilliant example of this is Canary Wharf in London which use to be a very busy dockyard. Now, it's one of the worlds busiest Financial Districts.


Skylines are beautiful and can add real character to a City. New York's skyline is debatebly its most well known feature - and it will carry that logo for a long time and the most well known Skyline in the world. It is also part of New York's history as much as anything else. However, for European Cities, skyscrapers have only started being built in the last 30 years or so (for the most part).


In terms of quality, I believe that it is still North America leading the way, with Europe following closely. This can be reflected in the buildings itself, the way they are so well designed, and the amount of recognition/awards the buildings receive.

For Example:
North American Towers have won the Emporis Skyscraper Award 6 times (3 of which from NYC). European Towers have won 5 Awards (two of which from London), whilst Asian Towers have won it 3 times.


At the end of the day it's all a matter of opinion. But modern European Skylines and Skyscrapers are nothing to be ashamed of, but instead celebrated.

I like Yekaterinburg for his small historic center. Consequently, it is possible to build a real lot of skyscrapers.. The city has plenty of space, a lot of low-rise nondescript buildings that don't mind to carry. Rock under the city will allow to build really tall buildings. Great prospects for growth, it seems to me.

La Defense doesn't seem very tall for some reason (compared to the others).

Why is this? Is it just the design or the width of the towers?

Sort of the European Miami Beach, quite impressive really.

It even has the highest skyscraper density per capita in the world, blushing the likes of Hongkong and Singapore.
