We're not trying to compete with asian cites in terms of building designs. As I've said many many times before: Tall buildings does not a city make. It's just a bonus.

This rendering is from SSP. This is what the skyline will look like with the City House and Olympic:

Who said L.A. was trying to compete with asian cities? Whats more important in a skyline is density and expansion thats what L.A. is working on now.

Don't worry, LA is ahead of asian cities in MANY ways... building height and density is only a small part of LA's assets. LA will come out ahead soon enough.

Are you talking about the City House and Olympic or the ones in the Grand Avenue rendering?

yeah...Houston!! I got accepted into the 3rd year (out of the 5 yr program) at the School of Architecture in Houston (among others), I chose it because it offers skyscraper design courses, which are very cool!! Not many architecture schools have this....only chicago, and..u guessed it, New YOrk (but I don't like cold weather - so I chose Houston).....although, even though I haven't left yet, i can't wait to get back! to see a lot of the development done!!

Here's where I will be living for the next 3 years...kinda cool...I never really knew how many highrises houston has...quite a few

I would love to see more supertalls in the United States in general. Hopefully they can build some supertalls in Los Angeles that can withstand a massive earthquake.



Are all these proposals that are in this thread designed to survive massive earthquakes? That's my main concern for skyscrapers in Los Angeles. I've never been to L.A. but I can't wait to see it and possibly love there for a while.
