Warsaw deserves its 3rd position in the poll i guess, WTT should be somewhere closer to the main hub, but with Z44 and hopefully Lillium tower itll be fine

English people are jealous. Have you seen what the average English town/city looks like and compared it to Liverpool?

Anyway, I think this thread flatters Liverpool a bit (Birmingham more so) but I don't like the way certain forumers have dismissed it outright, in the mindset that there's no UK city outside of London. I'll go with Frankfurt, I think, but Liverpool could well be up there in the future, if some of its proposals get off the ground after the economic crisis. We're worried that the heritage lobby are going to try and stiffle it though. They've been partially successful in doing that in the past.

Paris one is really beautiful. But Rotterdam is just the best, because it bring something new in architecture. Something special that other cities don't have. And it has the most beautiful bridge in the World!

1. Frankfurt
2. Paris
3. Liverpool
4. Rotterdam
5. London
6. Warsaw
7. Birmingham
8. Madrid

Said it before that London is amazing but the skyline lacks compared to other 'megacities'. Rotterdam does well for its size but I wouldn't exactly call it a nice skyline, it just has a lot of talls rather than a nice composition. Madrid will be great in the future but at the moment, those 4 big towers look weird on their own with not even anything half their size around them - again, not a good composition.

^How the hell can you place Birmingham over Madrid?? Birmingham´s skyline is mostly stumpy tower blocks.
