To me, Frankfurt looks Asian. What's the name of that famous tower in the middle of the cluster? I find it very oriental.

thats the Commerzbank Tower by Foster. It was completed in 1997 before most of the Asian skyscrapers existed, so you could argue, that the Asian skyscrapers look Western

I my opinion Frankfurt looks more like an American skyline Back in the 80's and 90's there were som epretty interesting skyscrapers being built outside the major cities in US, and CT kind of reminds me of that style and type of design...but that just my opinion, mind you

Thanks for the info. That is another way to look at it!

Well no, not really. I just told you the factual reasons why Canary Wharf looks like The World Financial Centre area in New York. Same shaped buildings, same three tower layout sounded by smaller towers and apartments.

Same company, same architects same master plan.

I can't think of any North American City that looks like Frankfurt...

Like I said, Canary Wharf was purpose built the North American way...

Perhaps once the Wood Wharf area and the many other towers planned for that section of London start getting built once Crossrail is complete you will get a better idea of it.

Canary Wharf will never be New York, and no one is trying to make it so. It is also disingenuous to conflate Canary Wharf with all there is skyline wise in London.
Talking about Canary Wharf, one of my fav pictures of London:

I always thought of Poland as a dark, destroyed, suicidal country even though I had a lot of very friendly Pole friends(I guess mainly because of history and hollywood). This and a few other threads showed me that I was wrong. Warsaw, Poznan, Lodz and Wroclaw are very good looking cities with very friendly people. Krakow will always be my favorite Polish city. I am not even gonna mention the Polish girls

I am really glad to see the progress in Warsaw's skyline. I should book a flight ticket from Istanbul to Warsaw

Warsaw is great in summer By then the Warsaw Spire (220m) should be 100m higher than now

I will go to Moscow and Milan in summer. I might stop by Warsaw for a day or two. Who knows.
