Cma Cgm Tower in Marseille

I find this one very unique and beautifull. She's not completed yet but she will probably be in 2009.

^ It's best European skyscraper, not skyline. Still, since the European skyline thread is closed, I vote for Paris.

Anything to the ctba level of quality really does it for me. I think London also has very high quality, specially in their current projects. La defense is going trough a lot of reclads which is great bc a lot of them looked outdated and Frankfurt makes the best skyline but im not so much of a fan when it comes to their individual quality.







But the kio towers have as special place for me, the first of their kind. Just love them

Itīs so stupid that people from England think that their highrise buildings in London are beautiful. Same with Dutch people and their buildings in Rotterdam
or even the Hague.
In any case you have to look to Frankfurt if you really want to see beautiful
skyscrapers in Europe.

Commerzbank and Messeturm are very nice, I love these buildings.

What do you think about Rondo 1 in Warsaw? Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merill

Name: Palace of Culture and Science
Native Name: Pałac Kultury i Nauki
Year: 1952-1955
Place: Warsaw
Architect: Lev Rudnev
Floors: 42
Height: 231/168 m (spire/roof)

I like it because there is not many classic skyscrapers in Europe and it's a quality project. If the upper part was just a little bigger - it would be as graceful as a modern fighter plane.

no i personally dont like that Palace of Culture and Science, in fact it's justa copy of the main building of the Moscow State University:


Turning Torso is a pretty weird building too, so i think the most marvelous already completed one is the Agbar Tower. Totally fascinating:


Speaking of upcoming structures.. the Federation Tower is gonna be very epic&awesome:


Current situation:

You may not like it but it's definitely not a copy of the MSU. The differences are especially striking on aerial photos.

No, it's not a copy, but (to the untrained eye) there's a lot of similarities between them...

^ It's the same architecture, but very different design. They're both really beautiful!
