Many of these buildings have individual designs that are quite nice, but the entire collection of them packed together looks disharmonious and very inorganic. The three tallest ones fit together fairly well, though.

I really hate these skylines, especially *new* ones, that have a supertall and nothing around it is even half it's size. That's the epitomy of throwing your dick on the table just because. Why build an absurd monstrosity surrounded by 15 story buildings? Just stupid and egotistical.

And Dubai looks like something I'd do on Sim City. A single road with skyscrapers along each side. Dumb planning.

Alright...flame away. Come at me, bro.
