Agreed. Frankfurt and Paris have the best skylines but when it comes to quality London takes the cake.

Amazing pic! How will Europe's best skyline even look when the "Deutsche Börse Cube" building (on the right) and T185 (not to mention T365 etc) get finished?
The recently built great towers "Opernturm" (170m) and "PalaisQuartier" (135m) even aren't visible in the photo, by the way

Impressive panorama, thanks for sharing!
Paris as the European model of a metropolis is insane. And way more fascinating & lively than any random Asian retort "metropolis" such as Dubai or Doha could ever be.

Dubai or Doha yeah. But what about Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing? Well, there's no old glamorous European architecture there... but lets be fair... those cities blow the shit away of any European (or American) city...

That's not fair to compare European cities to those Asian metropolis. There's not common ground to compare them.

You're probably right. I only responded to Erbse's remark though.

So do I got that right that you consider Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing as random Asian retort metropolises? 'Cause that's what I said about Dubai/Doha.


Anyway I definitely like the European urban model way better than the Asian or North American.
History will prove me right, as people prefer beautiful, harmonious classical architecture on a human scale. It's our very own nature that led to our past architecture.
And it's 'inhuman', cold technology and bulky industry that leads to our current (or post-WWII) 'modern' architecture.

People who aren't forced to live in huge skyscraper metropolis solitudes will always prefer beautiful, historical/classical places. I'm certain about that.

if we talk about new modern era glassy skylines ... right, but if it comes to inner city life, the mixture of classical and modern homogenous architecture, infrastructure, quality of living for the general public, then no way pansori.


it's a clean misbelief to assume that big ass skylines are automatically trademaks of top quality cities.
