  1. Brasil
    Ontem aproveitei a folga no feriado da sexta-feira Santa e resolvi fazer uns clicks da capital paranaense. (Estava com saudades de fotografar rsrs). Escolhi ir para locais altos de Curitiba nos bairros Pilarzinho e Vista Alegre. Esses bairros situam-se entre 970m e 1000m acima do nível do mar e...

  3. Guess the City
    Silhouettes add a level of guessing challenge by obscuring the finer details of buildings in a skyline. Rules: Only silhouettes are allowed. Bright backdrop, shadowy subjects. Posts don't need to be the entire skyline. The darker the object of the photo, the better. Starting off with an easy one:
  4. Citytalk and Urban Issues
    I wasn't sure whether to put this on the skyscraper forum or this forum, but as this is related to just construction in general I'll post it here for now. A while ago I thought about a way to measure the size of a skyline empirically and objectively, quite similar to the "skyline ranking" point...

    I just saw this while reading the morning news: JPMorgan Plans New Manhattan Headquarters for 15,000 Workers. Source: Bloomberg. The new building could be as much as 500 feet taller than the current building 270 Park Ave, which is 707 feet (215m). That would yield a 1200 footer! Excerpt...

  15. United States Urban Issues
    How and why did your metro's edge city, or other highrise clusters, whether in the city limits or in the suburbs, develop where it is? Is it related to transportation? Did it grow around an interchange, or major intersection, or along a major road? Did it grow around a major train station or...

  17. Minneapolis-Saint Paul
    This has always been a fun topic to me. How far away have you, personally, seen the skylines of the Twin Cities? I, personally have seen the IDS Center from State Highway 95 about 6 miles south of I-94 last summer. That was about 22 miles away from downtown Minneapolis. Pretty cool!
