What I really like in Frankfurt and London is that the skyscrapers are totally integrated within the city. They are not built in a designated area far away from the downtown. They are very much in the heart of the city along with historical buildings. This makes the city much more vibrant and those skyscrapers don't seem like "unnatural" additions to the city.

I don't like when cities resist to accept certain realities of the millennium. A city can be 4000 years old but we live in 2014 and you have to accept and learn to live with contemporary designs. Cities are living beings and they evolve. That's my opinion as an architect but this is such a debatable topic. Some of my colleagues agree with me while others are strictly oppose to the idea of new/old integrated cities.

I wonder, what do you guys think about that?

For me it is the opposite, i like when skyscrapers are built together in a area outside the city center. I think it's a shame when an historical city center is "degraded" by some modern skyscrapers.
Of course, some cities can allow to build skyscrapers in the center. Warsaw is a good example of a city that succesfully built skyscrapers in the center. But it depends on the situation of each city: the city center of Warsaw was totally destroyed during WWII, which allows such buildings.
But in fantastic cities like Rome or Paris, it is absolutely unthinkable to build skyscrapers in the center, would be a total disaster...

I'm OK with that. But your cause is totally lost in Paris, where the ideology of the "old city don't touch it SACREBLEU !!" is discouraging.

They built the Eiffel Tower. It doesn't seem like a disaster They also built this building in the heart of Paris(I don't know what were they thinking);

We have the exact same attitude in Turkey. It drives me crazy. The construction codes are way too strict in order to save the cultural heritage. They treat Istanbul as a big museum. They often forget that the city has needs considering it is the largest city in Turkey and perhaps in entire Europe.
