1. London
2. Frankfurt
3. Paris

The rest isn't really competition in my opinion.

Edit: 4. Warsaw

I am always astonished by the future renderings from La Défense. Does anyone have a high resolution future skyline of Paris?

If all these towers in London get built, London will have a nice futuristic skyline. The projects are all first class!

IMO:

1. exequo Frankfurt am Main, Ile de France (Paris) - with no doubt
2. exequo London, Warsaw

London:


Warsaw:


3. Rotterdam

But I love Poznan anyway

:P
