Re: Atlanta

Atlanta's best feature is its skyline and skyscrapers. Downtown also has a pretty nice, layered, dense, and especially tall skyline. Once you cross into midtown though it feels like all the tall buildings are built down 1 windy street. Seen from the highway (85 coming from the north especially) the city looks HUGE with the midtown 'scrapers in the foreground and the downtown skyline behind it.

Re: Atlanta

Ok this is it for the time being. When I have time I am going to sort through these pictures. I'll link the final threads when I make 'em.













This last one is of the Buckhead skyline, a suburban skyline a few miles past midtown.

Re: Atlanta

Ah, Philip Johnson and his love of the Giant Order... (One Atlantic Center, 191 Peachtree)

Atlanta's skyscrapers have something in common too: most were proposed shorter than they were actually built. If only we had that problem here in Boston. I'd love to stretch 500 Boylston higher!
