Emporis ranking method have many flaws....

For buildings, they give the same points for similar number of floors. No mater it's esthetic value.

For ex. They give the same amount of points for this buildings... (74 floors)



like they do for Bank of China. (72 floors)



Also this calculation does not include TV towers, masts, bridges, or other structures.

Another HUGE mistake... since many of those structures are the city landmark, and they leave out actually the most important feature of the skyline.

What is San Francisco without Golden Gate and Bay Bridge or Toronto without CN Tower?





And the list can go on wit ex like Paris without Eiffel, even cities that don't really need points like New York with Brooklyn Bridge and so on.
