In my opinion, London Skyline is more beautiful, because their skyscrapers are not in the same area as a cluster, but also their skyscrapers are in different shapes and designs unlike a bunch of boxes.

no way... London hasn´t actually a real skyline, like you say they are separated around the city and you just see 2-3 together... so nope!

London has converted glasshouses. At least Frankfurt has proper skyscrapers. London could never match Frankfurt's.

The tower's base cladding and execution looks like serious quality stuff, i am very impressed, allthough the design is somewhat ordinary.

I feel that making this comparison is pointless, it's like comparing the alps and the grand canyon. They are both beautiful but in their own ways as they are completely different formations.
