Note: This is a repeat post from the "Top 25 Highrise Skylines" thread. I just thought it would be appropriate for this thread as well. Ignore as you see fit...


For a medium-sized metro (3.3 million) Minneapolis/St. Paul has a very nice collection of buildings. Perhaps Minneapolis' skyline is noteworthy because it was designed by architects such as Philip Johnson, Cesar Pelli, I.M. Pei, Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel, Herzog & DeMeuron, Minoru Yamasaki, Gunnar Birkerts, Kohn Pedersen Fox, Helmut Jahn and SOM, among others.

It's certainly a very photogenic city!

The Big Three... Left:225 South Sixth (now called Capella Tower), designed by Pei, Cobb, Freed. Center: Wells Fargo Center, designed by Cesar Pelli. Right: The IDS Center, designed by Philip Johnson, and considered by many to be his "masterpiece of modernism."

The Minneapolis Public Library, designed by Cesar Pelli:

ING North American HQ, designed by Minoru Yamasaki (this was the building he designed just prior to the World Trade Center in New York):

The world's first fully suspended building: the Federal Reserve Bank's 9th District HQ. Floors above the "arc" are supported by columns resting on the arc. Floors below are hanging from the arc.)

Oh, and I go to Minneapolis just about once every two weeks.
i have never heard crack stacks or ghetto in the sky, but i do know that these buildings are mostly inhabited by somalian imigrants, which is why people refer to the area surrounding them as somaliville
