When I see it, Barna doesn't need scrapers. The Torre Agbar and the Olympic towers are enough

Moscow's super tall cluster. The 506 m tall Federation tower (the current hight is 242 m) is in the very centre of the composition.

So is the consensus here skyscrapers = skyline? There are a lot of great-looking cityscapes with low and mid-rises, like Prague. Their skyline is very distinct, historical, and beautiful.

When I see it, skyline is more composed of skyscrapers and not low or mid-rise buildings. Skyscrapers have height and they can reach the sky

I do not agree at all. Looking at Prague, the cityscape and skyline is absolutely stunning, although there are no skyscrapers.

Prague doesn't need skyscrapers and if they would put some, it would be in the suburbs or outskirts. Its a trend with most Euro cities where the city centre keeps its traditional buildings and have its highrises on the outside.

Unfortunately, no! But I'll be doing a Euro tour next year with London as the entry/exit point.

Like I said, most Euro cities. There can be exceptions just like London and Paris. Paris for example have some high-rises in the city centre but it is limited to certain spaces.

Even for Paris, although the skyscrapers are mainly clustered in La Defense west of 1er (the historic core), the tallest one in the city is actually across town (Tour Montparnasse). The Parisians aren't as daring in their redevelopment schemes in the core.

Considering London is such a major European city, their experiments with new constructions in the historic core may be a model for other European cities to follow.

True. There's also some high-rises located west of The Eiffel Tower.

In fact, I don't think it's accurate to say Paris' skyline is in La Defense. It includes even the lowrises and midrises elsewhere in the city that connect to the tall buildings that dot the cityscape elsewhere.

Hence, it goes back to my argument that a nice skyline doesn't always need to have skyscrapers.

The Montparnasse tower is a bit sole, the district need more skyscrapers.



Paris is the western European city with the most high-rises, most are not located iin la Defense.
There is other cluster like Olympiades, Front de Seine (near the Eiffel tower), Orgue des Flandres, Montparnasse...
