well certainly don't look to dubai to find a lonely skyscraper. a new one seems to pop up every day either as a proposal which will either get U/C or cancelled within a week

The Turning Torso ranks that high simply because there aren't a single skyscraper over 500ft in all of Nordic Europe besides the TT. That being said, it is quite lonely in its peninsula. The closest 80m+ highrise is at least 7-800 meters away.

It doesn't dwarf its friends as much as, say, the Taipei 101 does:

yeah, turning torso is really lonely.
but because of this it just looks that great. in a cluster it would loose a lot of its beauty i think.

This is very forced. You can take a photo of an house with the taipei 101 in the background to make it appear dwarfed by the house.

Not sure what you mean. Malmö is my home town and I have been to Taipei several times and the Taipei 101 definitely dwarves its nearby friends more than the Turning Torso do. There are towers that are nearly half the height of the TT quite close to it. There are no 250m+ towers nowhere near the Taipei 101.

These buildings are quite distant from the turning torso. Taipei 101 has many highrises near it. Also, taipei 101 has only about ~400 meters if you measure height by the same scale as the turning torso (witrh has 190 meter up to its continuous structure), so building half of the taipei 101's height should be 200 meter tall.

Umm, the Taipei 101 still dwarves its nearby competition much more than the TT does. Honestly, I don't think you've ever been to neither Taipei nor Malmö. It sure doesn't seem like it.

Here is a lonely one, Swansea (Wales UK) Meridian Quay, nowhere near as tall as anything else on this thread but most of the city is no higher than 4-5stories.
