Warsaw has great potential. Plus, since it's in EU, you can enjoy everything you can probably enjoy in cities like Zurich or London with much better value for every penny you spent.

Mistogun,

Ekaterinburg deserves at least one 300m+ building , as for now I think Ekaterinburg beats Warsaw in terms of 100m+ buildings with a proper 300m+ Warsaw will tail Yekaterinburg, Warsaw doesnt even have a full ring road around its city as opposed to main Russian cities, however I think both Ekaterinburg and Warsaw will compete in the future in terms of building higher and taller
I wish they had built Strazhi Urala (Guardians of the Urals), but... They were supposed to be 216 m + 198 m tall.



Moreover, unfinished Prizma is gonna be torn down I heard. What a shame. :eek:hno:



I think both Ekaterinburg and Warsaw will compete in the future in terms of building higher and taller
According to a wiki page Warsaw currently has 11 buildings above 150 m, Yekaterinburg just 2. How are they gonna compete??

Besides this already existing difference, several more 150m+ scrapers are coming along in Warszawa as we all know, whilst there's just one 150+m u\c in Yekat ("Opera") so there's a very slim chance Yekat is gonna catch up with the Polish capital any time soon, quite on th econtrarry, Warsawa is solidifying its lead over Yekat.

Be objective Check mate and less wishful thinking, please.

Milano: in my Opinion Velasca tower and the famous Pirelli are more iconic beautiful and nicer than all Porta Nuova buildings together.
The 3 skyscrapers in City Life are just gorgeous. Gorgeous all that city life project .

The architecture reflects climatic, geographic, geologic characteristics of the region - be it in Malta with its flat volcanic stone buildings with small windows, or in Norway with its wooden architecture with large windows and snow-resistant roofs. I have never heard about "European architecture", but have heard about Romanesque, Baroque, Art-Nuveau, Bauhaus, Neo-classical, Renaissance; or construction styles like Constructivism or Functionalism. So what is "European architecture". Do Maltese cities and Norwegian cities have that common "European architecture" thing?

If you are referring to the onion-like domes of the Russian/Orthodox churches, that is a Byzantine thing thus European. If you are referring to Soviet/Socialist urban planning with cubic blocks arranged in a special order, look for Scandinavian cities (especially Malmo, Reykjavik, most Finnish cities) which have similar patterns and you'll understand that the grid is influenced by weather conditions (it provides with the opportunity of more sunlight, more place for snow to be accumulated in winter and easily melted in spring, more place for vegetation and social activities, ice-hockey rinks etc).
