I wanna wake up in a city that has no bloody antennas.


I like this very much too. But if the one tower had'nt this odd antenna it would look much more magnificient. Like an artwork.

These silly antennas show the irrationality and primitive mind behind the "we want to have the biggest"-thinking. It's quiete revealing.

Since more than 40 years I might add.

This here is "only" a skyscraperfanpage. Height of a skyline on the other hand by most people is not distinguished by type of building, read Tower vs Highrise. 90% of common people area not aware of La Defense being in Paris or Moscow having a CBD. This is pure nerd SSC knowledge.

The Berlin skyline remains therefore one of the most iconic and highest in Europe.

Moscow's skyline almost changing daily.

Business City of Moscow city by Tales-of-the-Big-City, on Flickr

Business City of Moscow city

Moscow International Business Center, also referred to as Moscow-City, is a commercial district of central Moscow, Russia. Located near the Third Ring Road in Presnensky District of western Moscow, the Moscow-City area is currently under development.
The Moscow IBC is expected to become the first zone in Russia to combine business activity, living space and entertainment in one single development. The Moscow government first conceived the project in 1992. An estimated 250,000 – 300,000 people will be working, living, or visiting the complex at any given time.
The construction of Moscow IBC is taking place on the Presnenskaya embankment of the Moscow River approximately 4 kilometers (2.5 mi) west of Red Square, and just east of the Third Ring Road. The project occupies an area of 60 hectares, the territory chosen being the only area in central Moscow that can accommodate such a project. Before construction began, the area represented an old stone quarry where most of the buildings were old factories and industrial complexes that had been closed or abandoned. The total cost of the project is estimated at $12 billion.

That's the best cluster in Europe, but it does look a little random. It's not intuitive where the streets are like in other cities where the buildings are lined up straight or on a bend. Is it built on a giant pedestrian plaza?

The Shanghai computer image is dazzling!

Welp, since Moscow was posted here, may as well add a photo:

When some of the projects currently going on in the IBC finish Moscow will look even more stunning

These are the skylines of Berlin!

Celebrated and honoured throughout the world.

(absolutely fantastic, f*** off English)
