It's rather unpersonel (but maybe that's just the '80's). Cool height and density. 8/10

....oooohhhhh I dunno. I'm always so mixed about this skyline. Something soo.... blockish about it. The facades are very.. not interesting. There is hardly any variation on the buildings themselves. It just turns me off and seems... almost a little suburban to me. Perhaps its the slightly uninspired feel I get from the individual designs of the buildings.
Still, height and density is good, but I just don't feel like this is a top american skyline.

And I also must say there needs to be a lot more mid-rise action around the main cluster. The drop off is rather strange in spots.

It's pretty tall and blocky, and hasn't changed in years. Reminds me of La Defence in Paris. 5/10 average

Houston doesnt look nearly as dense if your looking at it from above though:






It has massive amounts of surface level parking.

But if your looking at it from the first angle it looks great.

8/10

I know. i've flown over it in a plane and I was a little dissapointed with all of the parking lots. at least it looks dense from some angles though
