Still an underdog, but might become a player sooner than later:

This photo is so great that it wasn't necessary to post the first one.

Very touching photographs from Paris. The artist is the best I have ever seen so far. Check out the link below.

Istanbul is more and more like an oriental New York, this skyline does not have only one single major point of view like many others in Europe imo. Many views can enhance it while Paris, Frankfurt, London, Warsaw, Milan etc... have to be taken from some POV to highlight the landmarks (St Mary Axe, Grande Arche, Warsaw Spire ..) and make the skylines undoubtly recognizible.

You don't get my point. Sometimes it is better to post just one photo. In this case the second photo is amazing and taken from a rare angle. Because of the first less interesting photo the best photo doesn't get the attention it deserves.

Most of the photos are taken from Noisy-le-Grand ( Paris inner suburb ). During the 70's, the 80's, people came from all over the world to see this uncommon architecture. You can notably recognise the world famous Camembert buildings.

A building under appreciated in its time due to its location i believe, once a few more talls join it up to the other skyscrapers i think it will grow on people. Also no comparison with the elegant shard and the Ryugyong Hotel from Pyongyang, which doesnt look AS bad now its been glazed.

I hope so, right now it really messes up the view of the city skyline from the other side of the thames and from tower bridge (which I guess is where most people would admire the skyline from), it's just too out of scale and right in the foreground.

I see it as London's tour Montparnasse, not necessarily ugly, but just too out of place and out of scale.

Istanbul's skyline has nothing to do with NYC's skyline. NYC has several clusters with tight and clear structure well integrated into the city and logical (i mean that buildings are gatting gradually higher).
Istanbul on the other hand is pure chaos.

WS a landmark? But it's not even ready yet



(it supposed to have two 40 meter spires when finished thus the name)

I think you either work for Ghelamco or confused this rather mediocre project with Palace of Culture and Science
