I personally don't like that the block trend(even if the building has original shapes and has generally post-modernish feeling) is still continuing in RESIDENTIAL housing today,. It reminds me either today's China(i don't say it's obsolete,it is just a different approach) or 1960s-1980s in europe, the age of modernism.

Maybe it is a russian specifics, who knows, It's just not my cup of tea.. And I do not live in a commieblock, but in Stalinist house

In 1960s, Russia followed the same trend as Western Europe at the time. And I think, modernist approach is not efficient anymore in residential hohsing

Turning back to skylines
I said that I like how Kazan and especially Yekaterinburg are evolving and developing. Kazan skyline along with Yekaterinburg look quit e original.

And skyline of Yekaterinburg, to my mind, is even more dense and nicer than Moscow's. And it will be in the near future. Density probably would be the most significant feature of it.
I like your answer. I think that really this type of building cities simply more suitable for us. And less for you. He has flaws - smaller living spaces than in a detached house, but there are advantages - courtyards where children from around the house can play together. Of course it's not all advantages and disadvantages, but overall I understand you.

In this case. I would just suggest refurbishment of blocks, like in Eastern European cities and East Berlin or at least, in Moscow.

In fact, the old commiblocks compelling cost no more than 20% of large cities. In all big cities are building new homes on the principle commiblocks but having a good design. As for Moscow, then with countries commiblocs there comes this way.

Leeds by a country mile - you get a much better panoramic view approaching the city from the motorways due to the geography

I think, for now Manchester has the better future for a skyline out the UK's other cities. @VDB on the Manchester forum did a little mock-up of the future skyline of Manchester and it looks quite impressive. Definitely one to look out for in the future.

I think Manchester and Liverpool as well due to its waterfront location and few good projects in pipeline. Both cities deserve much better skylines which they hopefully get in 5-7 years.
