For me, quality and elegancy, cladding, architectural approaches rather matter than height and "massiveness"

Fans of skyscrapers are going to Asia and America (only one Hong Kong has more skyscrapers than all European cities).

The most of the buildings in Hong Kong are also only ugly commieblocks.
Of which sees a house like the other.

IMHO La Defense is overrated. Ok, it looks very posctard-ish if shot from certain perspectives. But a) there's no urban planning involved whatsoever and b) it's completely dead after 6PM. It really feels like a ghost town.

It's quite true that la Défense is far from being the most bust ditrict after 6P.MS, despite some event over the year (like light shows performed on the arch)? It lacks every days shops and don't have enought restaurants (mostly insides commercials centers and compagny owned restauration).

But i strongly disagree with the second statement. Some borders of the district may be a little chaotic (links between the "dalle" and elswhere). But having a district divided by a large walking area, which is the direct continuity of the historical axis make it very planned. Especially with the arch who remind the older arc.

Yes, a really good picture of Kiev. It is evident that not only the 150+ (200+) meters affect the skyline. More than 500 20+ floor buildings (including 25 30+) creates a good skyline.

Great picture of Warsaw, Hudson. Perhaps the best I have ever seen of this European capital.
