I've included 8 cities in the poll that where named very often in the old thread. You can also post pictures from another city or give your own list with best skyline cities in the EU. Here are 8 pictures of 8 cities.

Frankfurt am Main - Germany

Rotterdam - the Netherlands

London - UK

Paris - France

Warsaw - Polen

Let's vote and discuss!
Warsaw - Poland not Polen

Here are some pictures of Hermitage Plaza (two of the projected supertalls in Paris)

I like the designs but in that location they make the cluster unbalanced. It would be better if they were to be built in the middle.

With twin towers, either side of the grand arch would be best. To be honest the buildings are unbalanced in their design so their location is no surprise.

They should build something not so tall before moving to higher buildings. The step is just too high, makes it unbalanced.

Lovely Frankfurt shots, Cello!



About those Paris designs: They suck balls.

I don't care : A supertall is a supertall !!!!!

More seriously, I have to admit that I'm a bit worried about the future skyline AND especially by the ugly/awful/hideous Signal Tower (as usual Jean Nouvel keeps the best for us )



But I looove the Foster's twin towers !!
