But turkey, unrestrained capitalism? Since when....
I think the hills look good.

Having your towers built in different areas all over the city means it takes longer to get a dense skyline, but when it does complete, it will be on a much bigger scale, and the little cluster skylines of other European cities will appear tiny in comparison.
Istanbul and london are building skylines on a greater scale than others.
Milan could be going this way too, just on a smaller scale
Could you please explain this part? Because I don't want Europe to end up like the United States at all: big companies that got it all, and on the other hand huge groups of people that have to work two jobs for a good health insurance and to be able to afford a good eduction on a good university for their children. Capitalism has not as interest to provide as well prosperity as well-being, but just to gain money. As a matter of fact I am glad that Europe does not let capitalism grow unrestrained. It is not for no reason that the liveability and happiness is higher here than in the US.

The reason europe can afford more social programs is because apart from UK and france the usa pays for our entire continents defense and has done for decades, costing hundreds of billions of dollars. Basically uk/france and usa pay so that Europe can have all those social programs and quality of life

Imagine how angry it must make American taxpayers to know that their tax money goes to pay for Europe to have social and health benefits that they themselves don't have

Of course, Europe mostly shares the same opinions as the USA in world politics, such as the battle against communism and developments in the middle-east. However, I do not think it's fair to say that for that reason the USA is paying for our defence. In particular because it's a decision made out of own considerations by the US government and not a favour because the EU asked for it.

La Défense looks so lonely from the front view.... Those towers need friends from left to right.

Amazing photos and to think what they will look like when all the under construction towers that aren't visible yet are complete. The city of london and canary wharf clusters will be much bigger, and then there's all the other clusters and towers going up, including some very large ones. It's going to be epic
