Frankfurt's cluster seems fairly sparse whereas Paris and London's clusters are more tightly-packed together.

I've visited GB's capital a few months ago and didn't like the way this city is building highrises - but of course, besides that, it's a magnificent place. Same goes probably for Moscow btw.
london don't need highrise buildings for it's skyline.And remember london is the finacial daddy which the likes of paris,frankfurt or moscow cannot even touch.So you can have you skyline for now!

does anybody agree or at least understand the reasons why London "don't need highrise buildings for it's skyline"?

Nice lighting effect. The most impressive I've seen for a Euro skyline.

Rugby is actually quite popular in Hong Kong. The Sevens attracts a huge expatriate crowd and the stadium can hold 40k people.

That can be debatable. Unless Euro cities have some ambitious supertalls. I'm seeing it in Moscow

Several European cities are on a building boom, but that boom is nowhere near the scale of what's happening in emerging Asia. Don't think any European city can match the scale that Shanghai and Shenzhen are experiencing.
