Most of these towers where never built This is a bad vision of how Rotterdam could have looked like if all the towers that where planned where built in the city center.

Most of these buildings are utter shite. Rotterdam should be glad that it looks like it looks now.

^Nope, lots of those towers would have looked great. But this is just a case of bad photoshopping. Towers like the Jungerhans or Corso tower would have looked great.

Sorry but many of those towers for Rotterdam look very very bad. Some of the worst I've seen so far.

I am glad that developers in rotterdam are thinking carefully before they start building, the fotoshop-image makes me puke! even tough this looks much worse than if all buidings would actualy have been build.(some of the towers would have looked great)

Some of those designs for Rotterdam seem to confirm the prognoses regarding civilization's architecture made by Oswald Spengler...

Apart from that, there isn't too much going on in the Warszawa skyline.
