They not only were ugly, also must have been a nightmare to live in. No light, no air, no space around the windows... just look at those buildings in the middle... surrounded at four sides... totally absurd.
Speaking of skyscrapers, the concept I like the best is Lujiazui, large spaces and green areas between towers that let you appreciate their height better, especially from street level - and make you live better too. F..k the density!

[QUOTE=Tom_Green;18382153]The plot in December 2007


Not very relevant, but is there anything special about the little building at the right side of the pic? I mean, why the heck it needs two Heli ports
