@kingdingeling: nice pictures

I agree that Rotterdam hasn't the most beautiful buildings, but New York also hasn't and New York has one of the best skylines in the world! So, it does'nt really matter how beautiful the buildings are. We're talking about the skyline, not only the buildings.

Some impressions of "De Rotterdam".







I don't understand why people are so negative about this building. It will become a really nice and dynamic building. The skyline of Rotterdam becomes better and better.

(Sorry for my English)

I agree. I think the thread should be closed and resumed in a year at the earliest. Let's wait for new skyscrapers to go up in our cities.

For now FRANKFURT is the winner of the poll.

Congratulations, Frankfurt!

Let me guess, you're just trying to make London look ugly. Really smart thing to do - seriously, just get lost.

My problem with De Rotterdam is for example the impact for Roterdams skyline. At its high it is too massive for this location and this city by ugly(subjective) design. There are really good projects on the pier like the new Orleans, which will be destroyed by the impact of this massive brick. So it is
bad+bad=2xbad

What can one do? There are trolls in every forum.

Posting pics of stuff that doesn't even have anything to do with the thread...says it all.

You have a point.
Well, let's just say the nice pictures of London far outweigh the not so nice ones...

I've seen a lot of skylines in my life, I visited every city in this poll except Moscow.
But to be honest I do think that Rotterdam has a better skyline then Madrid. You might not see this from the pictures, but when you're in real life in Rotterdam its looks great. Many mid rises, and a few highrises, but they look way higher because there are so much of them. Don't forget that its just a small city compared to the other cities in this poll. I do not say this because Im Dutch.

Frankfurt, London, Paris are way better then all the other cities that have been talked about in this treath. Moscow is impressive too, altough I think it isn't as nice as the Frankfurt, London, Paris, but I won't judge them because I never visited that city. I think there has been talked enough about the skylines, its so funny when someone says 'I don't like that skyline' someone of that city/country gets mad, come on guys you wont agree.
I've seen great pictures in this treath, I want more! (skylines offcourse not only buildings)

I think idea of this thread has run out.

Everybody has his statement about skylines of EU, nothing gonna change it and now it's no more than childish quarrels. Thread about European skylines is good idea, but polls and fights between R-Dam, Paris, London and Warsaw are just getting boring

ps. Warsaw skyline is of course the best one, no doubt about it

Why should I feed a troll like you Drop dead!

You know as much about it as the man in the moon. Are you really interested in architecture? I just wanted to post some of Londons finest buildings. If you don't believe it just check my threads about brilliant architecture!
