hey guys!
i'm xenoplas and i'm from germany. i'm rather new here so i just wanted to introduce myself to you

now to the skylines: i don't like those 4 dark glass buildings in singapure on the left as seen from the bay for example on the mbs skypark picture - it's not really because of the design of the buildings! they just look kinda out of the place. those twins look really nice though

U referring to this building?



Yes indeed at first when I look it feels so out of place and weird as it doesnt match the skyline of sg. But now i get used to it already haha. At night its beautiful, not in the day though

I like Singapore and Shanghai. But you have some excellent skylines down there. (if you get it, you get it)

yeah exactly those 4 towers
but i have to add that i generally think that the right and older part of sg skyline looks better imo than the left - don't ask me why it's just what my brain tells me
but still singapure has a really great skyline!

Is it because it looks flat - because they all have the same height, color, design? (almost)
compared to the cluster on the right, which has a better variety of colors height and design.


few more "generic" clusters like those new ones will really make Singapore skyline flat...


TBH i like the older "perfect" "triangular" SHAPE of Marina Bay
Smaller skylines do have some benefits hehe

For me, a good skyline is compact, tall and with different designs. Skylines where tall and generic buildings are widespread are boring.

yeah imo it's exactly as you and wino say! tokyo for example (my favourite city ;D) is really really gray but it still doesn't get boring that fast simply because of the great variety! and it's exactly the same with the older part of mb. i could watch it for hours - but that new part? nah thank you fifteen minutes is enough

one thing i can't agree with you though is that a skyline must be tall! i think lots of buildings between 100 and 250 meters or so look a lot better than a few supertall.
