And make sure they really discuss, not screaming at each other or doing the city bashing thing.

I'm sure I've said this before, but pardon me for those who have heard it. I like Frankfurt's skyline more than London's at the moment, but I did like a lot of the projects that are coming down the pike for London. It's just a matter of which of which of ones I like make it to construction. I also like the way the Instanbul skyline is configured. Paris has a lot of nice, futuristic-looking stuff that I like. I'm with Turbosnail with regard to Moscow.

A fine example of constructive, interesting, skyline discussion.

I'd be interested in what your feelings are about the direction Paris has chosen to go. They've built a modern cluster separate from historical Paris. It's given them a clean slate, but will have unintended negative effects. The energy and vitality of La Defense will increase at the expense of the older parts of the city. Paris (outside of La Defense) is by no means a museum like Venice, but this doesn't help.

the fact that there's not Milan in these 13 places puts on discussion your list

Hey Europeans, don't forget to vote for Zlota 44 in the 2013 Cup Semi-finals. It has currently 395 votes to Santiago Costanera Center's 404. If Zlota 44 wins the matchup than the finals will be between two EU skyscrapers: Zlota 44 in Warsaw and DC Towers in Vienna. Bring home the 2013 Cup for Europe!
