The density of the future City skyline is unbelievable. It's like tetris but with skyscrapers.

A bit too much in my opinion. I mean, people can just look directly into the other building. I know it will just be offices but still, a lot people won't even be able to see any daylight.

At this point they should just merge the buildings into one superblock.

Yeah, glass facades and windows don't make sense when the buildings are so close to each other. The concepts of early skyscrapers built before the 50s, following traditional rows of blockrand, oriented towards the street and with a firewall to the neighbouring building, made much more sense in this regard.

It's also much more urban, frankly:

I consider it an improvement to the original proposal. Slightly more refined and better proportioned, although it lessens the presence of the Leadenhall Building, which is a personal favourite.

The tiers complement the angle of 122 Leadenhall well in my book.

Also, Coal Drops. Just stunning.

I just love the Coal Drops Yard. It could very well be one of the best projects in the UK. It is subtle but so effective.

That super tight cluster of towers looks odd, they just seem to merge into one giant mega building. I like all the individual designs for these skyscrapers but in this case they are just to close to each other. Hopefully in reality when viewed from ground level it wont look like such a giant blob!
