I like the Tour Montparnasse, it looks like the big black monolith in "2001, a space odyssey"

Has anyone thought about touching it yet? It might send us hundreds of years into the future technology-wise!

Rankings of Europeans clusters IMO.

Most Beautiful (aesthetic factor)
ps : I only judje the modern skyline and not the city by itself, even if the location of the clusters are sometime in the middle of the old districts)

1) Paris (Classy and very harmonious, set on the historical axis, great new towers)
2) London (The City, original and classy and Canary dwarf classy too but a bit boxy, amazing location)
3) Frankfurt (great "alpin" feeling, quality skyscraper)
4) Warshaw (Already impressive, thanks to the great communist building which give a lot of character, more to come)
5) Milano (Rising up , lot of potential, great city)
6) Moscow (will raise up in my ranking when the cluster will not look like it has been raise in the middle of nowhere)
7) Rotterdam/The hague (quite charming, lot of potential)
8) Barcelona (the tower pop a bit everywhere and do not make really a cluster as for now).
9) Istambul (sorry but i don't really like those clusters, even if i adore the old city)
.....

Most Impressive (height factor)

1) Moscow (Supertalls...what else in Europe ?)
2) Istambul ( impressive amount of skyscrapers)
3) 4) in no special order
Frankfurt (Mainhattan !) and Paris (Tour Eiffel, Montparnasse + la Defense)
4) London (thanks to the Shard)
5) Warshaw
5) Benindorm
.....

The others skyline don't yet have this "impressive" feeling IMO, even if in some years, cities like Milano, Barcelona, Madrid or Rotterdam may ad a lot of newscomers. But impressive don't always means beautiful !

It's his personal opinion!!! Why are you acting like this? Because Warsaw is on 9th position?
