Istanbul is an amazing city! The city doesn't need these kind of buildings to look great. The city it self is great enough in so many (other) ways!
It doesn't need them to look great but it needs them for a lot of other reason. If Rotterdam feels the need to build skyscrapers you can imagine how it is in a city with larger population than whole Netherlands...

I can understand the reason why they are building such buildings, but when I look at the first image/photo for me the buildings are spoiling the nice natural horizon. Before these high-rises and skyscrapers were build, Istanbul gave me the endless city feeling. With those buildings now this feeling is gone. The high-rises and skyscrapers are distracting the beauty the city has got to offer.
Above that it seems they are building high-rises and skyscrapers randomly in the city.

Actually it is also one of the main reasons why it is very hard to built a supertall
Or even a highrise next to the Bosphorus.

Yes, the city looks endless, but for many the "old Istanbul" was this one.
Just 1 Mil. people and a lot of green
