@Ji-Ja-Jot & Skyline_FFM.
You find it ugly because you are from Germany.
It's one of a kind and when it's finished it will look great!

^It's unique, but I can understand if someone doesn't like it.

Uhum. People from other countries dislike it also. So I think it has nothing to do with nationality. Even Dutch don't like it. The other way round it makes more sense: YOU like it because you are probably from R'dam...
I love Dutch architecture - but that one is surely NOT my taste!!!

Yes, the bars that run down the structure (hard to see in that picture) will wave in a syncronize motition giving the ilusion that the obelisc spins.

The new tower for Rotterdam is to massive in my opinion, but lets wait and see the final result, hopefully it dosen't end up looking like a huge wall.

I'll be beaten up because of this but I can't see what's so special about Warsaw skyline. There are only a few buildings and my only favourite is the Soviet one.

City proper A'dam has more inhabitants than R'dam city proper, but R'dam (206 km2) is bigger (larger) than A'dam (166 km2).
Btw, I meant calimero behaviour because of the fact Rotterdam has more and taller buildings than Amsterdam.

Amsterdam is the way more interesting, beautiful and classy city, anyway. They shouldn't give a crap about some other Dutch cities having a modern skyline or not, Amsterdam doesn't need and shouldn't have one.

Stay out of this Karotte. Mind your own (East)German business.
Du gehts langsam auf em Geist!
By the way... This is not 'being a more classy city forum', but a 'skyscraper(city) forum'.

that was somehow a halfhearted german sash, you have to say "ich sash bin ein richtiger vollpfosten" and not "du gehts langsam auf em geist".

give it a try buddy, do it the r'dam way !
