Exactly, much more appealing is the one with Industrial facade and pipes.
As for the best skyscraper, I think that Federation Complex (if you count it as one skyscraper) wins hands down

no, my goodness! Federation Complex looks fugly, it doesn't have right proportions, it looks way too fat and has a dull facade.

I like the Gherkin and my favorite skyscraper in Frankfurt is the Japancenter.

Frankfurt needs to hire decent architects.

Cluster has good density and looks nice at night but the architecture is just hideous.

Just don't answer to SO143. He just can't stop throwing in one or the other trolling comment once in while...

To contribute something:
Some of Frankfurt's towers feel a little outdated to me (mostly the cladding). Some transparent glass towers would be nice...

Photo quality sucks, but the skyline is quite impressive:

Very good, it's density is nearly catching up with Manila skyline

Keep trying, you will achieve something like this in the future

You know, SO143, it's just funny to mock other forumer's posts or pictures, if they've been hopelessly exaggerating or hyping, like you do for example with London! It's not so funny, if you are attacking comparatively moderate posts, like mine or others. You just come across as a sublime idiot.
Come on, do you really have to take lessons in humor/sarcasm by a German?

Folks this thread is about Best European Skyscraper we better avoid posting pics of the entire skyline

Please just post pics of single building like this ... it will allow us to discuss about each building, thanks

This is the only nice skyscraper in London:



I saw Gherkin in person and it's not too nice. Yeah, the glass pattern and ***** shape are unique but that doesn't make it any better than Ackbar Tower in Barcelona.
