After seeing all the beasts showing off some muscles like NY and Shanghai.... then seeing the tiny Zurich here, it is like a short ads of a little petite town after tonnes of mega skylines blockbuster series....

Why theres no iconic famous landmarks being built there like in London or Paris?(maybe there are some, but only famous to certain group of peoples eg the europeans.btw im asian) despite the name zurich itself is pretty much wellknown and kinda heavyweight in the global scene.

How come Dubai is so universally hated? It's easily a top 4 skyline.

That's basically europe for you.But don't be fooled because I was.Zurich happen to be one of the best planned cities in the world.Their public transport system exceed ny and even shangai.And zurich is pretty modern.Honestly you'll be impress with their level of planning.There's almost never a traffic jam because everything is so detailly organized to every srutiny.
And also Europe in general don't really like tall skycrapers and prefer low rise cities.But don't underestimate them because they rival that of high tier cities and despite their medieval look they're actually very modern.I'm also Asian btw.

Thank you for the info bro... never been to Zurich just yet that's why maybe I can't appreciate it as what it supposed to.

Being a normal guy from Asian, its normal for people like me to feel more attracted in visiting other european cities like London4x,Paris,Frankfurt,Amsterdam and Istanbul

One part I agree, European cities are very neat n tidy

I don't think its universally hated. I personally do not like the skyline. It comes off as superficial like Las Vegas. I do however like certain buildings like Burj Al Arab which I find to be of the most beautiful supertalls built in recent times.

Dubai is not universally hated, just a few jealous folks only. Dubai is building more supertalls that most cities that are building 200m buildings. The numbers make people jelly

Top 5 tallest buildings in Dubai by 2020 (built and U/C)

1. The Tower- 928 meter

2. Burj Khalifa- 828 meter

3. Entisar Tower- 520 meter

4. Marina 106- 445 meter

5. Marina 101- 428 meter

And 30 more supertalls

Sometimes its not about height. Look at manhattan without 432, look at singapore without supertall, look at la defense or tokyo. I find dubai skyscrapers are tacky and too many spheres, a lot of gaps in between and most skyscrapers are in one line main street.

However at certain angles dubai looks nice. Its not on my top 5 list but can be in my top 10


The list for 2016

1. New york
2. Hong kong
3. Shanghai
4. Chicago
5. Guangzhou
6. Singapore
7. KL
8. Toronto
9. Shenzhen
10. Tokyo
11. Dubai
12. Bangkok
13. Sydney
14. Doha
15. Jakarta
16. Metro manila
17. Busan
18. Paris
19. Seoul
20. Melbourne

Yeah,I guess some sarcastic guys may ask:does dubai only have one street? and yet,have the best skyline in the world?

I think this is a weakness of Dubai skyline, but in the future,Dubai skyline maybe the best.
