perfect by architecture and not ONLY height. i definitely love Shanghai tower, it's perfect but skyline is not perfect at all because other buildings are not perfect. London is historic city and new buildings are rising in historical London, leadenhall building or walkie talkie, gherkin they are't high but they are perfect as architectural buildings

You lost me when you said perfect by architecture. No individual can define what's perfect or not. What you call perfection is simply your personal preference, not a fact. All individual comments about perfection is subjective.

For your info shanghai is not dubai. Shanghai has a lot historical building be it chinese or western heritage building. Just walk along the Bund and you will be amazed by the historic skyline facing the modern skyline. East meet West, Old Vs New.

Moreover London skyline is smaller than Singapore, how to be perfect? I know you love London just like me love Singapore but I am still being realistic that Singapore is not perfect yet.

If talking about a perfect skyline, i would rather say HK and New York as well as Shanghai would be almost perfect.



And in my opinion London skyline look weird, all short yet the modern building mix with the historic building but dont match each other. Just like the design of shard tower and that egg tower. London may have difficulty to reach top 20

i did't say that London is perfect yet, shanghai is historic city as London, and i did't say that shanghai skyline is bad, i love shanghai! i love Singapore as i love London or Shanghai, but i said that in perspective London's skyline is very good but not yet, so now Shanghai has much more better skyline at all but London has perspective to have more

If Asia is far then so is Europe, for sure. If we're talking about high-rises.

In Shanghai there are much more really good high-rises than in London, be sure!

To compare Shanghai and London skylines is the same as to compare a one-person kayak and Titanic.

P.S. Shanghai Tower is not the best about Shanghai. There are tens of better ones.

Having said that, the world's top skyline belongs to Chicago according to my list of best skylines in the world.
The pics you've quoted are not less chaotic than any asian skylines.

I am sorry, I didn't see your post when I was typing mine.

But why should we stick to Europe if the thread is about World skyline?
