Please try to control your emotion as much as you can (no personal attack) i know if someone says Bangkok doesn't have good skylines, that pisses you off. Well, I do realise the problem with Bangkok skyscrapers is that the quality of glass, steel and good architecture. Bangkok desperately needs good architects like Norman Foster, Renzo Piano etc for example. I will show you sample of glass that i like ...

Yeah it pisses me off when your comment is so ignorant and wrong. I would accept it if Bangkok was like Rotterdam, London or any other european city, that would be more true.

that building above was nothing remarable.

I am not talking about the building, but the quality of glass. Of course, obviously that building i have shown above has crappy design. My current favourite buildings are here - (just sample i have lots of other favourites in so many other cities too)

One World Trade Centre in New York


The Pinnacle and The Shard in London

Then you must have this skyscraper in Bangkok on your top 3 list
I like that building in London but I personally think it is wrong to have a very tall building surrounded by lowrise buildings. Just look at Turning Torso in Malmö, Sweden. It is an amazing building but it looks ugly when everything around is flat as a panncake.

Mahanakon (Bangkok) 314 meters, start construction soon.

I find this building (above you have shown) very very hideous and weird, it looks weak and messy rather than classy, elegant, clean and powerful. But i might like other future towers in Bangkok if you have those pictures. just post more and i will tell you whether they suit my preference or not.

Hmm, if you think that building that I posted above is ugly and weird, then I don't have anything else to post . For me it looks amazing, perfect, awesome .

OK I have a video for you, a project that just started construction a few weeks ago, check it out.

How could you say that building looks perfect and awesome, in fact which looks it has been eaten by a bunch of mouses? And your picture doesn't show the quality of glass either, so i can't judge on it's over all quality. Design is just a mess. Anyway, i don't i see it's construction progress thread on SSC?

This is another building (1043 ft) in Paris that i find so weird and ugly


But this is my another favourite skyscrapers in Paris (on the right side, Hermitage Plaza 1060 ft)

I believe you are talking about The Shard, yes it is being isolated from other London's clusters such as Canary Wharf and The City. Why? because it is a new supertall landmark/icon of London just like Eiffiel Tower in Paris. If you build other supertalls around it, it's beauty will be ruined by those other tall towers. In cities like Paris and London, the architects very need to be careful if they build something which must not bloke the view of cathedrals and historical sites etc, i know its unlike in Bangkok.

How could you compare with London and Malmo? which is just a village with very small population (no offend to Swedish), whereas London is the most populated and biggest city in EU

Here is nightime view of The Pinnacle, one of my favourites

See how taste can be so different. You think that this building is ugly as hell but I think it is a masterpiece. One of the most unique projects in the world right now.

I am not impressed by London at all. It has a horrible skyline with few skyscrapers (I can count them on 2 hands) and the quality is good on 5 of them , that is just my opinion .

You dont really have to impressed by London skyline because which is already one of the greatest cities on earth and its already only one of Alpha++ World City out of 2. Skyscrapers don't make a city to be one of the greatest.

It is one of the best in Europe

No, You can't count all the London skyscrapers by both hands, you are obviously telling me a lie. And i am sure European cities do not need lots of tall buildings all over the city like in Sao Paulo or Bangkok. What European (great) cities need is just a medium size skyline that contains world's best architecture, breathtaking quality, expensive and some of the world's most recognizable iconic supertalls. That's how you create a city classy, elegant, and great.

Anyway this is also one of my favourite skyscrapers in New York, (Bank of America)

Another one in London, (The Gherkin)

Very obvious thing is most people find Singapore skyline way cooler and nicer than Bangkok although it is not as massive as BBK's skyline. Quality is very important and i prefer it over quantity. This is the reason why Bangkok projects and skyscrapers threads get less attention compared to my favourites.

London is not the best in lowrise europe, that says it all, Paris is better .

Cities with many skyscrapers look more powerfull and cool just look at NYC, Chicago, HK, Shanghai, Bangkok, Manila to name a few. Compare them to London, Helsinki, Rotterdam, Berlin which all look weak and boring when you look at the city.

Bangkoks 2-300 skyscraper projects are way cooler than 2 skyscraper projects in London . London is weak I tell ya!

Can you stop posting about Bangkok all the time? And I can't believe I saw that "GAWC" study cited which is like the worst study ever done on cities
