Oslo city hall. It only reaches 66m at the highest so I guess it's debatable whether it counts as a skyscraper or not, but I saw that the 56m high Luhrs Tower was posted so I hope it is accepted.

The buildings in front and around the city hall were demolished soon after these pictures where taken.










Finished result:

Cool thread.

Its always hard to imagine what it looked like when a particular famous building wasn't yet there.
It seems as though all the famous towers we know today have been there for all times.
So...cool to see all these pictures and support the lack of imagination

not a skyscraper, but a famous tower and interesting to see:

Berliner Fernsehturm, 1968

Bundesarchiv/Wikipedia








René Frost, http://www.slr-foto.de/galerie-archi...itektur_13.htm



Looked like the Death Star in construction
