Cluster makes skyline great there's no doubt about it.
That's why Warszawa will be greates European skyline, because there is a lot of space for skyscrapres.

Paris and Warszawa. Paris has also much space for new buildings.

Chciago > London
Perfect city.

Here some Chicago's downtown tour.

It is probably the densest city. Impossible to build in the center like Warsaw or London.

Wha? There is no place for skyscrapers in London. London has no cluster skyline. La Defense is a modern city with a lot of space.

BTW It's Warszawa not Warsaw. It's Polish city not English... I don't write Londyn.

You don't write Londyn because the language on this forum is English, not Polish

Same in the US and Canada... New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto, even Los Angeles and its historic downtown - It's even more impressive over there. London is the only exception in Europe where it's future skyline will be able to rival American cities. However, London is so huge, they have to build so many more towers to achieve this, while smaller cities such as Frankfurt and Warsaw just need to add 1 or 2 new towers and the resulting skyline impact is way more dramatic.

What makes Paris and other European skyline great is not the cluster,but also the blending of traditional architecture with modern buildings.Backdrop also play a role.Cluster might be a factor but it's not the definitive reason what makes a great skyline.
Paris and Frankfurt are a joke when compared to Shanghai, Singapore and Chicago.
Europe is getting into skyscrapers very late, let's be honest. Even Edmonton has a more dense cohesive skyline than most European metropolises.
I look at skylines in a simpler way. Basically, what do I see on the horizon? Is it interesting? Does it make an impact? I'll never forget seeing NYC's skyline for the first time, driving in from the Jersey side. I looked to the left and it took my breath away.

If Warsaw could connect this then it would be one of the best skylines in Europe. There's lots of space there. I think they could do it. Don't forget where this city was 20 years ago.

@dickpound

Warszawa will be the best European skyline, because it will be fully glassed and sticky.

What I see are a lot of paper towers.

Paris has better skyline than London... Warszawski skyline remind me about Los Angeles.
If there will be no war. Warszawa will be first city in Europe, because we have great diaspora around the world.

BTW this mock-up shows where buildings can be build in Warszawa. Which is everywhere.

Yekaterinburg





Most skyscraper projects in Ekaterinburg are on hold I guess the EU sanctions plus low oil prices had an impact , that's why a peace with Ukraine is a must !

This thread pertains to the discussion of the best modern European skyline. Not politics or nationalities, I've deleted these posts - please stay on-topic.
