Shanghai's just immense. It looks so much bigger than Hong Kong despite ranking behind it in all the quantitative measures I've come across.

Didn't realize those were one of his. I'm increasingly becoming a fan of his work. L Tower is the latest Libeskind building I'm captivated by. It's a 205 m condo tower U/C in Toronto.

to figure out who has the best skyline in the world, have to have these 3 important things

height + density + design

I agree with those 3, but what about scale? One that goes on for 20 blocks is more impressive than one that's 10 blocks.

I just think that scale would be subjected under the density attribute...
plus proper clustering and organization under design or density as well IMO...
Thats a good and acceptable criteria!

I don't know if I would put Chicago out of the top 5 quite yet, even with all of the emerging skylines in the world.

Wow, I don't think anything can match the density and height of Chinese cities.. maybe Brazilian or Indian cities?
