Every time I look at Istanbul skyline I have the feeling that it's just a suburban office park (or rather parks) where towers popped out at some point, without any plan to connect them with the rest of the city. It seem to have numbers in it's favor but not much else to be honest.

Fabulous. Just another proof, that historical and classical skylines are much more significant, characteristic, unique and beautiful than modernist ones.

Paris will never be characterised or stereotyped by a place like La Defense, it's way too boring, bland and exchangeable to characterise a magnificent city like Paris.

By a place like La Defense (as is) - maybe, but arguably not the best example. So architecture that inspires is only from yesterday?

Somehow la defense is missing something. Maybe it's because the same height from the left to The right. I love the buildings though, they are lovely.

Perhaps you should read the title of this thread again.

If you mean what I think you mean with the building with that artwork, then you are mistaken. That is not graffiti or something like that, but the Gedächtniskirche:
