Chinese cities in general are impressive and increasingly famous, but it's nice to see Vancouver gaining some recognition beyond our shores. It's always been a spectacularly beautiful city, but somewhat under appreciated. The Olympic Games are coming to Vancouver in 2010, so it looks like Vancouver will finally get a bright spotlight shone their way.

Brazil

(all found on the net if origin is not specified):

3- Porto Alegre







2- Belo Horizonte





I think these were taken by 'rational crazy', at least he posted them (he is banned now, maybe because these were not his images and he posted then and didn't tell from where he found them):



1- São Paulo



Note that all brazilian cities have a large number of low quality small highrises.

Manchester -3 = Quite a good skyline + dense & great architecture but a bit spread out.

Birmingham -2 = Loads of highrises,dense but not so great architecture and lacking a bit of height but that will come.
