For the most part, the Moscow skyscrapers are just poorly conceived and poorly built. They're kitschy. I agree that a lot of the London skyscrapers aren't great either but many are top-notch architecturally and in terms of quality of execution, especially in Canary Wharf, much more so than in the City, IMO. To me, there's really no comparison between Moscow and London.I wouldn't say that London's skyscrapers are that great.
With all due respect, many of skyscrapers in London are not particularly attractive.
They are weird, strange, special, but attractive is not the word I would use.
Same applies to Moscow city.
The truth is, skyscrapers feel out of place both in Moscow and London (at least city center).
Its the same reason, why skyscrapers don't look good in Jerusalem.
I don't think skyscrapers mix well with historic architecture.
I think this compound is overbuilt but it's kind of a cool departure for Tel Aviv. It's very "big city." The buildings themselves, while they look similar, are all pretty attractive.
