Click on the link below from Sky Video to see a video featuring Prince Charles exposing -once again- his aversion to tall buildings. The video includes interesting footage of London's early residential highrises, Tokyo skyline and a good aerial view of the Canary wharf complex.

As pointed out by the speaker towards the end of the short video, we now have the knowledge and hopefully the wisdom to build eco-friendly highrise environments without reaching hew urban heights at the expense of our natural environment.
