@ Cosmo, it's good to have you back. Now let's start another debate.

You used to say that Berlin was the best skyline in the world. I am going to assume you backed off that statement. Now it appears that you are saying it is the best in EU. I would disagree with that.

The best in EU is probably Frankfurt or London, why do you think Berlin has the best skyline in Europe ?

My statement now and in the past was that Berlin has the most recognizable and highest inner city skyline in the EU. The first claim is debatable because Paris has a good position as well. The second one canīt be challenged.

One TV tower doesn't make a skyline. Fernsehturm is pretty much the only high building in Berlin.
Berlin is a great city, but doesn't really have a skyline.

This is not a skyline but an observation tower.

Actually its more amusing, to read how distorted the definition of a skyline has become in this Highrise-Fan-Forum.

A chunk of big buildings does not form a significant silhouette or skyline,
thats why nobody remembers several cityscapes in Asia, the US or the Middle East.

Only signature buildings have the power to make a skyline memorable and great.

He goes by the strict definition of the line that buildings make with the sky with no regard for size, scale, density of the buildings making that line. For him, its whether that 'line' looks pretty.

Yeah, and it's even more ironic when he says that everyone's definition of a skyline is distorted))))))

Wikipedia :
Quote:
A skyline is the overall or partial view of a city's buildings and structures against the sky. It can also be described as the artificial horizon that a city's overall structure creates. Skylines serve as a kind of fingerprint of a city, as no two skylines are alike.
Means: A skyline which is most distinctive, iconic and unique can claim world class status. Because everbody can remember it. The size or the number of highrises play a minor role in this commonly accepted defintion.

The thread should be renamend in: The best building-conglomerates in the world, as few posts deal with skylines in a classic sense.

Nobody would argue the natural beauty of Berlin and I personally like it, but this is a skyscrapers forum and thats what SSC stand for and that certainly is Jan's intention when he created this forum 10 years ago. Berlin has a nice skyline but I'd dare to say it desn't has the qualifcation at least in this forum as a candidate to become the best in the world. I don't mind there is some berlin photos being post here once in a while but please don't do it everyday, thanks!

I love the Fernsehturm, but Berlin doesn't have a skyline. It's more of a sky parabola.

I wanted to bring this over to the next page. I didn't realize it was closed. Was this a mistake? I hope somebody notices this and reopens it.
