You are spot on about Seoul though, an incredible city, a bit of a toy shop for Tech geeks like myself!

appreciated friend! i agreed probably language barrier make omission in rank
I want to see some tremendous IT revolution in human life as soon as possible
And more people become wealthy n healthy for the bright future!
especially through Technology! hopefully my city contribute to those New Era in human life

The cladding in the photo looks absolutely different to the render above it. Very different skies, though.

Owning a flat in London

I've been watching Skyscrapercity for about 5-6 years now, initially glued to the supertalls forum, eg. The Shard, The Cheesegrater (not a supertall I know) and more recently the wonderful Shanghai Tower. Once they get topped out I lose interest and for about a year now, nothing on the supertalls forum excites me.

Hence my focus has switched to the London City/Metro compilation and the fantastic mix of projects and buildings and the progress each has made. The variety, thoughtfulness and sheer ingenuity of some of these builds is incredible. Makes me almost want to live in one!

But, which one would I choose, that would be one hell of a decision, assuming the money was there (which it isn't!). Ignoring all the usual factors, affecting the decision such as proximity to work, family, friends, etc. I think the Embassy Gardens comes close to being perfect!

Yes, a top floor flat please, 2 beds, with a view of the Thames up towards parliament. Better make sure I get my beach towel out early.

Finally, thanks to everyone who clearly make a considerable effort to update this forum. Great stuff!

Chris.

PS. My favourite building in the world....The Flatiron.

Giant fingers by Mexican artist go on display in Trafalgar Square

Two giant fingers have been installed in Trafalgar Square as part of four exhibitions taking place across London.

The 25-ton contemporary sculpture, made from cast bronze coated in white paint, is called "You" by Mexican artist Jose Rivelino.

Each piece in the Contemporary Mexican Sculpture: The Vision of Four Artists series will be made in volcanic stone, bronze or resin, and use a major landmark as a backdrop.
