Perth is nice, but it isn't dense enough.

agreed...its sucks and boring.really.

i prefer scattered buildings...can view from different angle.

I think that the projects in Moscow have a good esthetic continuity and that it will have an imposing but yet tasteful skyline in the future.

As far as the Dubai debate goes, I think its will be sort of a showcase type city, interesting, massive. But to tell you the truth im more pleased in some ways by the initiatives taken for Abu Dhabi. But will see, its interesting nevertheless.

Dubai looks too modern and sterile! It is impressing, but even with htose supertalls I prefer NYC or Chicago which combine new and old style scrapers!
