Frankfurt, La Defense...


And I'll give a shout out to Istanbul, which should have been on the poll.

Im only going to mention Birmingham as its my home town. It clearly isn't one of the best skylines in Europe although it does have tremendous potential.

I love Frankfurt and La Defense where London also is quite striking up close and personal, pictures never seem to do it justice. Warsaw, Rotterdam and Istanbul are also WOWS!

This is what I hope Birmingham will aim for in the not so distant future as these cities really do make a statement. Fingers crossed our highrises continue to rise

Good pic of Frankfurt.
Frankfurt, London, Paris. Top 3 in the EU imo.
But as said above, Birmingham has huge potential.

IMO:
Paris La Defense - great density, to flat though. Need some dominate.
London Canary Wharf - also positive thanks to density, need more highrises btw.
Rotterdam - great architekture, need to get more dense.
Frankfurt - also great architecture (except the highest tower - looks horrible for me), and great height, but also need to get more dense.
Warsaw - density need to be increased, need some dominate.

It's getting plenty more highrises, don't you worry.
(By plenty, I mean that the Docklands cluster will at least double in size. )
