DISCUSS: Middle-Eastern skylines.

What do you think are the best Middle-Eastern skylines? Support your opinion with pictures. For me it's
1. Dubai
2. Doha
3. Abu Dhabi
4. Kuwait City
5. Sharjah

Doha is my favorite of all.

2nd would probably be Kuwait.

Riyadh is making a push and I would certainly put it ahead of Sharjah. The rest of your original list is pretty solid (2/3/4 are kind of interchangeable after Dubai).

Doha is beautiful. In the future I see it looking a bit like Hing Kong.

Dubai, but some of these skylines just look like something a 4-year old would draw: just a bunch of random shapes with no interaction with each other.

I don't know any good skylines in this region. There seems to be no cohesion. The buildings seem to be randomly placed.

Riyadh maybe after the Kingdom Tower is completed? At that time there would be a lot more buildings with it.

It looks a bit smashed in the landscape. Not a real interaction with the rest of the city, but let's see how it develops. For now, it's weird to look at. #14
