I agree that's the truth Buenos Aires has a better skyline, because it has the highest density of skyscrapers in height, but Santiago, has a better design of buildings and also a natural environment of beautiful mountains.

in 2013.. puerto madero will have .. no.. im wrong.. nowadays.. puerto madero has more tall buildings than the whole chile.. so .. in 2013..

First of all, those designs are good, but not great, (except for a few, like pelli's project), especially considering Buenos Aires as the "city of design".

And second, you are so idiot. The world is not gonna ended in 2012, please . Besides, Chile's population accounts for almost 16 million inhabitants, and Argentina near to the 41 million. Is a huge diference between us, but even yet, we have a lot of projects, amazing buildings...

El jil eres tú, que no ves que estoy defendiendo Santiago. Yo me opongo al que diga que tenemos una ciudad muy linda, pero que la cagamos diciendo que es la mejor... bueno, hay que creerse el cuento, y los argentinos saben de eso, aunque no tengan razón en muchas cosas.

My god!! What a non-sense thread!

You can easily realize that Buenos Aires have no comparisson here in SA.
It is not only about the present . . . the skyline and the architecture of a city is made through history.

When Buenos Aires had the tallest skyscraper in the southern hemisphere, by the 1930s, there was no other "CITY" in Sa, well Sao P. has always been an architecural disaster for me.

Santiago has no history, but a very limited present. A mean, we agree that Santiago has a beautiful architectural general concept. But, is has no IDENTITY. Its a copy of the American architecture. There I saw a cheap copy of the Chrisler Building. Its a very modern city, but the "nice" area has few metres. In few blocks there is nothing more to see.

South America = Buenos Aires . . . Sp may be too.

Es que me parece bastante ridícula la pelea y no hay necesidad de defender nada, Santiago se defiende sola, solo con sus fotos, y no hay necesidad de contestarle a alguien con argumentos de niño, igual que este último que escribio que Santiago no tiene historia cacha a lo que llegaron, se toman muy personal esto, a las finales la cuestión es bien simple, mirar las fotos y opinar cual skyline te parece mas bonito y listo y no andar escribiendo tremedos testamentos justificando por que una es mejor que otra, si a las finales da lo mismo, no vay a ser mejor persona por que tu ciudad tenga un mejor skyline

I don't understand why some Argentineans are desperate saying "Santiago has no history, identity, Skyscrapers, etc". As if they were to win or lose something.

They criticize us for saying "Santiago has the best designs", but by the other hand, they say "You can easily realize that Buenos Aires have no comparisson here in SA."

I mean, what the heck are you thinking?
Maybe I forgot that they has the absolute truth, lol.
