This is a thread where you can post all your skyscraper designs you have done in google sketchup, other programs or by hand, and have people comment on them:)

Here is mine

It is a tower between 250m-270m that will form the pinnacle to a residential cluster, which will attach to the right of the main city cluster by a group of 80m-150m buildings. It is primarily residential/hotel with shops, bars and restraunts too. The top will house a three floor penthouse and a spire which should take it to about 290m.



proper colors



Please add your designs:)

Thanks:) If you get a scanner it would be great to see your designs:)

Here is another one I have just done quickly, alot more curves with this one

It would stand on blackfriars road near Beetham and Wilkinson eyre at about 150m, Providing a nice step down to the cluster. It would be completely residential.

I have removed this to stop rival architecs stealing the idea.

there is a reason for this action and you will see the reason in about 20 years maximum.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Looks like something out of Asia and in a way reminds me of the Taipei 101 tower as well.

Here is another one, backstory inspired by Warcry's "Slice of Beauty"

A tower standing 250m-400m on the site of Arrowhead quay. The current planned project is small and bland, this one would hopefully suit the area more, but at the same time vary from the extreme-boxiness.

It would be office and residential, with a resteraunt and bar at the very top. The top of the tower would also be open to the public.

Obviously nothig like this will ever be built around here if LCA continues to run.



As you can (hopefully) see from the aerial view, the tower is supposedto be the shape of an arrowhead.

I think the wing one of warcry is exactly the style that the city is looking for. Something a little more conservative in shape but with a smart crown feature. Sets off the skyline nicely. Liking the angulars too Newcastle Kid.

I did a tower once then Ken Shuttleworth called it Vortex ;) Mine was far more slender and less tapered though.
