Alien looking skylines

I Think Doha is a good contender

Shanghaj, Dubai too.

Are there any others you can think of? Im really interested in small/medium sized unknown skylines i haven't seen so often.

How amazing is it that we are the ones with alien looking skylines?

I wonder if some aliens out there are imagining that skylines outside their planet also look like this

The name of this thread should be changed to "Best Futuristic Skylines"

I love that pointed tower in Riyadh, every photo from that angle has the sun reflected off the base which makes it look like a rocket blasting off

That weird flying saucer structure near to it also adds that space-y vibe

To be honest, Middle East skylines looks all alien to me but in a good way.
