The Paris skyline is all artifice.



The London skyline is organic.

The Paris skyline is not all artifice in the sense that it grows through private demand and private investment (for the most part). The organization that develops and maintains public spaces/ infrastructure in La Defense (EPADESA) is actually mostly privately funded through selling building permits to developers.

It may not 'look' as organic as the city skyline in London because it is segregated from the historic centre, but I would argue that it comes down to culture; French people like things to be organized carefully and are arguably more attached to their heritage.

The best example of this is to type in cdg airport, and heathrow airport in google maps and look at the layout of the two from the air. Cdg is very carefully planned out, whereas Heathrow is all over the place.

By the way. Rotterdam is a cool city. It changed from a quite dull and boring city in the 80's into a city with lots of interesting to see and to do.
I modeled my Cities:Skylines city (a game) on Rotterdam :P

I think I like it because it has quite a lot of towers spread out, sort of reminds me of some of the great US skylines. I also love the fact that it has lots of different colours and is also boxey, I am not that fond of too many ostentatious towers, sort of prefer good quality boxey ones .

I'll be sure to go there one day!

You, sir, have good taste in video games!

I'm also a fan of the Rotterdam skyline, I'll never forget the time I got a cruise from the terminal right by the towers as we sailed through the city.
