Two? I consider the building with the wind turbines (forgot the name) a landmark, too. So it's three in my book.

It's called Strata, and I agree with you. I love it, even though it won the Carbuncle Cup back in 2010.

Sorry, shame on me, Strata does count.

That picture reminds me of a show I watched- 'life after people'. It basically showed how the built up environment deteriorates over time without man, that pic looks lke a forest has grown over London

I love that sort of city to be honest, modern skyscrapers are surrounded by a lot of big trees, flowers and green planets. Looks very peasant and peaceful, i do prefer it over complete concrete jungle that has no green spaces.
