Go for a drink with friends in Tower 42, look down on Swiss Re and marvel at the wide open spaces.

Erm... no. There were some problems filling it initially (back in 2004/5), but it's almost fully let now.

Swiss Re is way over rated in my opinion, but I'm not saying that it's ugly. Just that it's not as good as people say that it is

My fav European Skyscrapers are (in no particular order):

Turning Torso
Commerzbank
Swiss Re
And some of Warsaw's skyscrapers but I'm not gonna mention them becouse I might like them not becouse they are that good, but just becouse they are in Poland. Local patriotism

Obviously I don't know all scrapers in europe, so I am listing just few of my favourites here...

Swiss Re, London - great shape, creates nice contrasts with neighbouring architecture

Japan Center, Frankfurt - Nothing to compare to, very original.

Commerzbank, Frankfurt - reminds me a flagship, also quite extraordinary.

you just don't forget buildings like these, so that's my current list of top scrapers.

Not mines.

Does it mean that those who say Warsaw's skyline is the best in Europe are not skyline experts?

Its funny most of ppl here say that Messeturm is classic european skyscraper.
In my opinion it is the most american scraper in Europe, its obvious it looks like ESB, no doubt about it.
I went thru this topic and have not seen any pic of R1 so...

for me: Messerturm, Frankfurt on pole position and Strijkijzer, The Hague (UC) on the second place.

By and large, European skyscrapers aren't the most inspiring.

Title goes to Swiss-re or Turning Torso.
